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.

google is profitable

Google is one of the very few startups of the last decade to actually make a profit. That is one reason why people resepct it.

In contrast Facebook, Amazon, Twitter etc are basically sophisticated Ponzi schemes with no real prospect of being successful businesses.
