Google Why does Google get so much credit in the technology industry? Why, despite the company's many obvious failings, do many geeks and enthusiasts still hold a somewhat positive view on the all-knowing technology giant? A specific talk at Google I/O this week provides the answer.

(Mind you I was expecting to read something negative)

even if they did about their normal business and it failed it wouldn't be the end of the day. Google do lots of projects which fail. And then they cancel them. Or try again with something which is hopefully better.

Some stick.

I guess Apple has been better at picking what will stick and not (though I can't say I like the idea of having different devices for Apple Airport/extreme/what was it called? and Apple Express or say later the Apple TV but some are obviously ok with paying multiple times for about the same device when it all could had been one. Maybe it's because people like to remember the successful projects and forget about the crap.
