Column: Google to go 'in-depth,' kill cookies, solve death
Making the cover of Time magazine used to be one of the great hallmarks of success for an individual or a company, and it’s still no mean feat. Though, most companies would not be thrilled at being described, like Google is this week in its Time cover story, as “one of the most successful, ubiquitous and increasingly strange companies on the planet.”
Then again, Google corporate types may not mind the description, and co-founder and CEO Larry Page may be quite pleased.
It’s not just the wearable computer called Google Glass that Time finds strange, or the “smart balloons” that beam Internet signals to remote locations, or the driverless cars steering themselves down the highways of California, Florida, and Nevada.
