I cant seem to think of one person that I might know that has not been impacted by Google. Can you?
Google's corporate motto is ...Dont be Evil! Its written in their Prospectus. Their belief is that they would be better served in the world if they do good things even if it means forgoing some short term gains.
This seems to be working out nicely for them.
“What Would Google Do?” – As the book by Jeff Jarvis says…”companies need to learn from Google and grow by building platforms to help others prosper“. Thats what Google does…they help others prosper. We all have free access to most everything Google has to offer so that we can improve our lives...learn, stay in touch, build our business's. Yes, Google makes an incredible amount of money by advertising but their first order of business was/is to create free conflict free access to information. If you search for this book on Google, the first option to buy it is by Amazon (not GooglePlay)
