Thanks for the welcome. In fact, Ive been a lurker for quite some time - just waiting for the right opportunity to post! Thought this was a very interesting article..

Can Google really singlehandedly save the tech sector? Something to think about...

That's putting a pretty big weight on Google's shoulders!

Saving the tech sector is going to take more than one solid IPO.

Google will no doubt be a good IPO when it launches, I just hope it doesn't prove to be their downfall.

"I just hope it doesn't prove to be their downfall."

No joke, Google lost $100,000,000+ in value since May 1st. They've transformed themselves from the industry leader to just another search engine. The customer goodwill they have now won't last if they don't fix what has been broken.
