google gulp

For Google's stockholders it must be nice to know the company can spend resources on pointless stuff like this:

http://www.google.com/googlegulp/

But after 1000 millionaires were made from their IPO I guess they all have some extra free time.

What is that anyways? Can anyone guess why they would go to such lengths to even make a lengthy FAQ?

No thanks, man. We like our freedom.
And I think this:

Will soon be that copycat release from Redmond kicking their [Google's] butt. Any takers on who will win? I'm putting my money on Microsoft.

Bad sense of humor. Not enough to do. I would recommend sending them a copy of the Netscape story.

Hey, if I could figure out google, I would be happy to join them.

Only a thousand millionaires after a few years of work. Gee, I could handle the fact I would have $1,000,000.00 after only a few years.

I try to be a good boss but $1,000,000 in less than 10 years. That is better than I am doing.

I agree it would have been nice to be at Google for that IPO but I still think their stock is over-valued. Their search is getting worse, they have advertising branding issues for example: I can profit by ads using my competitors brand. They don't offer nearly as many services as Yahoo. Yet I'm amazed their stock is trading above $220.
