“Stay hungry Stay foolish”——Steven Jobs
April 6, 2009 BY JOHN BATTELLE
It's not easy being the oxygen of the Internet economy. Google is starting to take blows from every side. Check out the first five headlines from IWantMedia this morning.
First,the Post (which I don't trust much as a rule, given its broad use of unnamed sources) follows last week's speculation around a Twitter acquisition with the headline that Google is talking to Twitter as a "defensive move."
Second, Barron's practically yells at Google for even considering talking to Twitter, because Twitter will never have a business model. (Idiots, of course it does).
Third, Google's YouTube division is widely reported to be losing nearly half a billion dollars.
Fourth, Google looks to have to fight, yet again, the trademarked AdWords lawsuit.
And Fifth, Google is now looking less like a sacred cow, and more like a milk cow, to media moguls with impaired cash flow.
Happy Monday, Google!
