The more I read about google, the more I think it is amazing that they are in business at all. In today's new - google "lost" 128 million in executive search fees. Basically, a executive search frim too X shares at $.30 each and sold them for $108 a month later. ...now, if I were a stock holder or employee at google I would be @%*& pissed about this. Sorry, but no executive in the world is worth 128 million is SEARCH fees - that doesn't even include compensation.

Don't get me wrong, executives are important - that is why they have 7 figure salaries. ...but a 9 figure fee, just to find one!

Seriously. I can't even begin to get my head around what bad business that is.
