This news is amusing considering that whenever I call Google on a local number I get someone in India.

Did you see the news where "do no evil" was busted hacking Safari web browser users to up their ad traffic?

Leave it to Google to face anti-trust in multiple countries but still manage to lul investors into thinking all is well. Falling from $600 won't look pretty so expect G to perform a stock split soon to keep it from looking dramatic, on paper at least.
