The inability to retain key employees is the first clear sign of company in decline, so this news has to be disturbing to Google shareholders:
Facebook hires away Google’s top chef
Is it “poaching” when a company steals a rival’s chef? At Google, executive chef Josef Desimone scrambled cruelty-free eggs by the truckload. Now Facebook has hired him to replace steam-heated trays of takeout with the kind of free food Googlers are used to. For engineers, Facebook is the new dreamland, and a company cafeteria is the kind of perk they’ve come to expect.
The end is near for the search monopoly.

Takes all kinds.
And it just so happens that we have $20 MILLION DOLLARS that we need to smuggle out of the country and will give you half if you help us. But you must pay $10 thousand in bribes first.
No problem, I live to bribe anonymous third world civil servants and their agents.
OMFG! U R so lucky to have been visited by the great and powerful Ghazala Khan. Who knows what wonderful things may befall you now.
How come my message about the monopoly claim got deleted? If you the language was inappropriate at least have the guts to address the main point. How is google a monopoly?
Mani has been in a cave for the last five years. Google is a de facto monopoly. Most traffic monitoring services estimate Google’s share at around 63% of the search market. The nearest rival, Yahoo, is around 21%. Everyone else is in the single digit percentage or less. That does not appear to be a competitive market to me, especially if Yahoo partners with Google to avoid being taken over by Microsoft.
