Google: Times, They Are Changing

August 25, 2008

Valley Wag reports that some perquisites at Google are going the way of the dodo. The story “Google’s Food Perks on the Chopping Block” here will be trimmed.  On Sunday, August 25, 2008, the San Jose Mercury News pointed out here that Google has yet to make its new ventures pay off. Add to this the increasing criticism of Google and it’s clear that the high-flying company is undergoing change. Xooglers, once viewed as sure bets, have also stumbled; for example, the search system which débuted to intense interest has flagged. In short, Google’s magic touch seems to be waning. Will Tony Bennett sing again in the Google cafeteria? He may be replaced with a busker from the Montgomery BART entrance. Cheaper for sure. What other changes are afoot? I will try to keep a running list.
