Google Google CEO Larry Page was interviewed on Charlie Rose recently, and there was certainly some interesting stuff in there. Sadly, the interview suffers from the curse of modern journalism in that it was all a bit timid and civil (no truly harsh and confronting questions), but despite that, it's still a good watch. Two quotes from Page really stood out to me.

However, to be fair, if you look at it purely from a financial point of view it did work - immensely well actually. HP's stock grew quite steadily over her tenure and afterwards under Mark Hurd with the EDS merger (which you could say was a continuation of her strategy) - and most people would love to have Mark Hurd back.


Again with the stock market! It's all smoke and mirrors. When will you learn? You even mentioned what HP had to sacrifice in order to get those stock market "gains". Where can HP go after that?
