Eric Schmidt: How Google Can Help Newspapers - WSJ.com
Now the Internet has broken down the entire news package with articles read individually, reached from a blog or search engine, and abandoned if there is no good reason to hang around once the story is finished. It's what we have come to call internally the atomic unit of consumption.
I certainly don't believe that the Internet will mean the death of news. Through innovation and technology, it can endure with newfound profitability and vitality. Video didn't kill the radio star. It created a whole new additional industry.

Google's Microsoft Moment - Anil Dash
When Microsoft reached its apex in terms of public perception and industry respect, with the launch of Windows 95, the culture inside the company still largely saw themselves as upstarts against old, proprietary behemoths. Though Microsoft's headcount has increase fivefold since then, at the time of Windows 95's launch, they had about 17,000 employees.

Google's Marissa Mayer on the importance of real-time search | Technology | The Guardian
But there's a potential third form of search, she explains, which uses the sensors built into devices around us. "I think that some of the smartphones are doing a lot of the work for us: by having cameras they already have eyes; by having GPS they know where they are; by having things like accelerometers they know how you're holding them."

The Database of Intentions is More Valuable than the Database of Musings For Now (Google and Twitter)
To me, the most important question to answer is whether Twitter wants to be a directory or a utility. Directories get paid for organizing stuff and making it easier for advertisers and users to find each other. Google does this. The Yellow Pages does this. It’s a good business because it helps people on both sides of the transaction and there’s a precedent for the directory company to take a cut of the transactions they enable.

Utilities don’t work like that. Utilities get paid for providing a service, maintaining uptime, and generally being available for use. This is what your local power and cable companies do. It’s a totally different business - you don’t pay your phone company every time you close a deal on the phone. Utilities by and large function on access and usage fees - they don’t (and shouldn’t) get in the business of siphoning off a chunk of the transactions they enable.
