The fact that he bashed Amazon (Kindle vs Google Android?) made me think too. My radar went off but who knows, a lot of leaks are fishy. I' not a G+ user but many are saying that it is hard to make that mistake.
Hell, even individual engineers feel free to post up their own vision for the company at midnight after a few glasses of merlot, as though they were Steve Jobs himself, and still live to tell the tale! If that Stevey guy was working for Bezos or Jobs he'd be looking for work today, but he survives and will probably produce another rant in a month's time.
Is the chaos in Google a strength or a weakness? It's hard to tell because we've never seen an operational

You are kidding, right? Facebook is just for fun, no one is in a rush, not that Google hardware is any better than FB's [techcrunch.com...] . You must have missed the account locking and other wonderful stuff that Google does, freezing people out of their entire digital life for days on end. This speed thing is a marketing nonsense, Google saves you 10ms so you can spend 30% of your day on Facebook.
I hope you continue to do well but that doesn't mean you're doing well thanks to Google, or that you wouldn't be doing better if Google was less greedy with ads and other fishy things. Yes Google is doing many revolutionary things, like Local, a credit card compare service, offers, a Bizrate clone with 'Trust' etc.
Unlike Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook, they still have a lot of goodwill from Joe Public.
Ignore the rants, people love FB and numbers tell that. I never really heard many complaints regarding Amazon. As per Microsoft, it's a religion to hate them :)
Once it starts it's like an avalanche, so I do not buy the 5 years. Like now they can't be doing anything wrong, but once it starts, they can't be doing anything right.
