Google Lays Another Egg!

Google Lays Another Egg!

            Larry Page and Google could be improving society, instead they waste their time engineering tech toys and Internet advertising schemes that only help Google. Neither of these approaches make the world any better for anyone, unless you happen to be in the one percent who can afford the bloated price of Google's stock.
            As I recently read an article about Google founder Larry Page published this past March, I sat and laughed at how clueless Page is about what people really want. You see, I conduct a massive amount of research on a wide variety of topics and I have learned to read people. I sometimes know what will be on their mind before they even think it. In applying this gift to Larry Page, every word that comes out of his mouth seems to be about his hurt pride and trying to be a world player. However, there is still the lost little tech geek boy inside his shoes. In his closed off world of money and toys, he believes that he can change the world by creating new tech crap for the rest of us to buy.
             The world does not want a car that drives itself. The world does not want automatons taking their jobs or serving them drinks. The world does not want robots spoon feeding the elderly or the handicapped (and neither do the elderly or the handicapped). The world does not want technology taking over their lives, period. These ideas clearly show that Google and Larry Page have no idea about how to go about “Understanding every want and need” of the public. That would require actual work being done and getting your hands dirty while doing it, and I don't see Google or Page doing either to help society or this planet.
            It is time that Mr. Page and his tech geeks step down out of their ivory tower and start helping the real world solve its real problems. These problems cannot be fixed by a check, by new tech toys, or by platitudes and monuments to Page's naivete. The world's problems can only be solved by research and hands on applications where your hands get dirty just coming close to the task that needs to be done.
            The March 2014 article comparing Mr. Page to Nikola Tesla was a huge stretch of the imagination to say the least. Tesla helped develop alternating current, found sources of free energy, developed various means of time travel, and died having given his life to help solve some of society's problems. On the other hand, Google and Page have created an advertising monster that uses your personal Internet usage to market things to you that you don't want or need. They then spend massive amounts of money researching and developing tech toys that no one wants or needs. The truth is that Nikola Tesla and Larry Page are a million miles apart - beyond comparison in fact. One gave his life for his fellow man, the other hides behind his money and builds tech toys that no one wants or needs.
            Page has developed a definition of what he believes Google should be. In 2012 Larry Page told a reporter that “the perfect search engine would understand whatever your need is. It would understand everything in the world deeply and give you back kind of exactly what you need.” This statement shows just how out of touch Google and Page are with the real needs of the real world.
             If Mr. Page and Google truly want to help mankind, I have a hundred and some ways that they can make the world a better place for all of us to live better lives in harmony. I challenge Mr. Page to contact me personally in the next two weeks if he and Google are really interested in doing their part to improve this world that we live on. But hey, that would require an effort on their part and a bit of hard work. They might even have to get their hands dirty, and we wouldn't want them to mess up their clothes. I doubt he'll call, because I doubt that Page and Google are really serious about anything but making advertising, money, and tech toys.
