Yea, definitely a success story. It will be interesting to see how the battle with Microsoft unfolds.

They basically told the story behind how they got started, in a garage, and how many of their employees became millionaires when the IPO was listed. The two founders, ages 31 & 32, are worth about 6 BILLION each now.

Amazing story. My favorite was the board room table was a ping-pong table in the early years. The company headquarters has a FREE catered cafeteria and they say it's more productive. They play volleyball everyday as well. The two founders share an office and the day of the IPO one of em went out and bought a new shirt, LOL. The figures are that Google is worth more than GM, and Ford combined. Is that a market cap basis? The employment interviews can go higher then 10 sessions. Amazing when you factor the burst of the dot coms. The future should be very interesting for them. I also can't wait to see what Microsoft can do about theM as well.
PS. The other segment on 60 minutes about the hottie actress from India was way better...What was her name?
