    Be prepared for a volatile earnings summer. Who knows how the 800-pound gorilla is going to react? There are a lot of things Google could do to get more money for themselves that we would very definitely not like.

    Follow up thought #1

    Maven is both a competitor and partner of Google. One might think that is a good thing, but it actually makes us vulnerable on both fronts.

      One thing which might happen: Google blames inability to get a firm hold in the Chinese market for the slow down. Reported in PCWorld, that's what some tech companies did. But more importantly: Google will not cut its thumb off to please its elbow. These partners need each other, and hurting one damages the other.

        The good news: after reading the article, Google still appears to be the most prosperous cash cow on the planet.

        The bad news: it is unknown how Google will pay homage to the concept of the balance sheet that the analysts hold as their living God.

        I watch relevant companies the way most of the internet watches celebrities and politicians.  Not a darn thing I can do to participate, but it's fun to watch.

              Aren't we full of ourselves. How is wishing a successful company not topic specific. Snip yourself.

                It was my post that was not topic specific, not yours. Sorry for the misunderstanding. smile

      Thanks. For the record, I am likewise fond of Google. I even wrote a positive article about them long ago. I've reread the article recently and saw no reason to change anything.
