NYT Search Sunday

Fallows complains that search is not very good at answering sophisticated questions (no kidding) and a Times reporter wonders if Google is worth $300 a share (answer: no answer. From the article: “Is it a price worth paying? Sure, if it really is different this time.”

    yeah i kind of laughed when i read both of those articles…. Conrad seems to want to compare Google to another dotcom stock, but then says it isnt because it makes a gazilion dollars. But this was my favorite, “The privacy issue could hit” the company, Mr. Pyykkonen said, adding that “advertisers are aware of it” and might not want to risk becoming associated with a perceived threat. As for the stock, he said, “If you don’t own it, I wouldn’t buy it.” He prefers Yahoo and a small paid search company called ValueClick.

    Advertisers dont want to be associated with privacy issues?????
    im confused, advertisers want one thing to be associated with and it sounds like this, cha-ching!
