Phillipp Lenssen over at Google Blogoscoped published a fake press release that is dated a bit over 10 year in the future titled: “Google Acquires Internet (May 2017)”.
The press release is a parody of Google’s webcast from yesterday where the CEO, Eric Schmidt, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, some other Google Execs and the CEO of Doubleclick “answered” questions to the free press about the announcement of Google to acquire the Ad Network DoubleClick, which also owns the affiliate network/search agency Performics for $3.1 Billion.
The representatives of major newspapers, analysts and other high profile professionals that attended the live teleconference call did have a lot of very interesting questions indeed. The only problem was that none of the real questions got answered during the 45 minute Q&A.
Phil, got the “Google Talk” pretty well copied that used a lot of words without saying anything except worthless catch phrases that mean everything and nothing.
Google should consider hireing Phill for their next teleconference with similar subject. Phill would cover the whole Q&A all by himself and save the Google management a lot of time and energy. :)
Funny and easy to digest entertainment for everybody who is still recovering from the tough days at SES N.Y. hehe.
For anybody who prefers (and is already able to digest) more serious speculations about the future of what changes the acquisition will bring to Google and search, check out the post by David Lewis over at ReveNews.com titled: Google’s Advertising Everywhere.
