Google has turned into a stock market laggard as the shift to mobile devices has lowered the Internet search leader's digital ad prices and the company's expensive investments in far-out technology has trimmed its profit margins.
Page believes the company needs to continue taking risks and making big bets on ambitious ideas to open future moneymaking opportunities while striving to make the world a better place.
Another way would be for Google to start paying a quarterly dividend for the first time in its 10-year history as a public company, or to pour money into buying back its own stock.
Investors also may have drawn hope from Pichette's pledge to spend in a "prudent manner," even after a year that saw Google pour billions into hiring nearly 10,000 more employees and a wide range of projects that include self-driving cars, Internet-connected eyewear, Internet-beaming balloons, robotics, satellites and biotechnology.
Even though shift from desktop computers to smartphones has curbed Google's pricing power in the digital market, Olson believes the Mountain View, California, company is likely to regain some of the clout as the mobile market evolves.
"If opportunities arise that might cause us to sacrifice short-term results but are in the best long-term interest of our shareholders, we will take those opportunities," Page wrote in a letter leading up to Google's initial public offering in 2004.
Melbourne (AFP) - Top seed Serena Williams' coach has dismissed the American's decade-long, 15-0 winning streak against Maria Sharapova as irrelevant ahead of the arch-rivals' blockbuster Australian Open final on Saturday. The final will pit the world's two best players, both in sizzling form, against one another in a dream Grand Slam decider, although the second seeded Sharapova faces questions over her staggering inability to notch a win over Williams since 2004.
London (AFP) - Fifty years after Winston Churchill's death, the wartime prime minister remains a touchstone of British political life -- and a reminder of a faded age of global influence. Top politicians will be among those attending a re-enactment of his funeral procession in London on Friday, 50 years to the day since it was watched on television by 350 million people, complete with a gun salute and the raising of Tower Bridge."His enduring legacy and influence on political life and British culture is testament to his formidable strength of character and remarkable achievements," Prime Minister David Cameron, who will also attend a wreath-laying ceremony at parliament, said.
