"Brands are the solution, not the problem," Mr. Schmidt said. "Brands are how you sort out the cesspool."
Do those brands include Interflora, J.C.Penny, Overstock, 1800Flowers, GourmetGiftBaskets. GoCompare, or Forbes Magazine? And do they include newspapers that sell links?
Schmidt's statement seems to inply that Google gave up trying to identify real quality and fell back on brands as the only solution they were capable of coming up with.
