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.

With the exception of their original product, Google Search, I don't care about any of Google's "products". Chrome is okay, but the world wouldn't come to an end if it vanished tomorrow. There are so many good smartphone OS's that if Android vanished it's place would be filled almost instantly. I do think Google Earth does have purpose besides looking at your own house. People who use things like Street View have too much time on their hands. Google has too much time on it's hands. Everything else they do I can think is marginal at best as far as having any value.
