Agog Over Google

As a simple Internet search engine has grown into a billion-dollar tech behemoth, the question becomes: Is Google good? Take quiz, find out.

A) Oh, my. Rare is the company that tangles with CNET and lives to tell about it. I mean, Google does know that CNET runs the powerhouse -- right? Right?!?

B) That's completely unfair toward Schmidt. It's one thing to know if some average Joe has a criminal record or an embarrassing photograph in his past. It's another to know where a rich person lives.

C) Google versus CNET? That's like an episode of WrestleMania, except that only hard-core nerds will care. OK, so it's like an episode of WrestleMania.

7) Google made clear its plans for growth with the recent announcement that it would build a 1-million-square-foot campus just a few miles away from its 915,000-square-foot headquarters in Mountain View, known as the "Googleplex," on the grounds of NASA's Ames Research Center. The company hopes to make thousands of new hires and blend some of its brainy payroll with NASA's rocket scientists. Given this plan, what do you think the future holds for Google?

A) Let me put it this way: You can't spell "Google" without CIA. Shit. Wait ....

B) Well, I just Googled "future and Google," and I got a picture of a half-naked Pamela Anderson on a bearskin rug. Future looks good to me.

C) I think it's clear: Google will put a man on the moon by 2007.
