But Google Labs? This is really weird: since the early days of G, I always associated G with research and innovation because of the Google Labs! It gave the company this kind of cool academic image, where you can explore ideas and yet be in industry.
Their image is a carefully crafted lie. Google labs has done jack, I can't think of a successful product that came out of Google other than search.
