 -  Jaron Lanier
  

  Do I really want to do a mobile game that's one of 300,000, where discoverability is everything? You really have to have a little more sizzle on the steak. I would rather be one of 100 apps for Google Glass than one of 300,000 for iOS and Android.

 -  Neil Armstrong
  

  The kind of environment that we developed Google in, the reason that we were able to develop a search engine, is the web was so open. Once you get too many rules, that will stifle innovation.

 -  Vinod Khosla
  

  It is very similar to companies like Google and other internet companies. When you go and search on Google you don't pay for that. But sometimes you click on an advert and Google makes money on that.

  When we started Skype, if you look at analyst reports, no one forecasted it as a big business. Also when Google started, it was not fashionable to be in search. It's not trying to do the obvious - that's the hard part.

  Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don't have to be that good to be much better.

 -  Marc Andreessen
  

  I look at Google and think they have a strong academic culture. Elegant solutions to complex problems.

 -  Marc Andreessen
  

  Nokia and Research in Motion needed a modern operating system. They could have bought Palm or Android before Google did, but they didn't. Today, it's probably too late, and at the time they would have been criticized for overpaying, but as they say - shift happens.  
 -  Marc Andreessen
  

  The launch of Google+ apps sends a powerful signal - the personalized web has begun.

 -  Daniel Mainwaring

  Eric Schmidt looks innocent enough, with his watercolor blue eyes and his tiny office full of toys and his Google campus stocked with volleyball courts and unlocked bikes and wheat-grass shots and cereal dispensers and Haribo Gummi Bears and heated toilet seats and herb gardens and parking lots with cords hanging to plug in electric cars.  
 -  Maureen Dowd
  

  Why can't Google, which likes to see itself as a 'Don't Be Evil' benevolent force in society, just write us a big check for using our stories, so we can keep checks and balances alive and continue to provide the search engine with our stories?  
 -  Maureen Dowd
  

  The advent of Google+ and the emergence of the personalized web means this is more true than ever. Brands, and their advertising partners, must wake up to this challenge and define themselves with clarity, consistency and authenticity. Otherwise they just might find themselves shouting in a ghost town.  
 -  Daniel Mainwaring
  

  Google is famous for making the tiniest changes to pixel locations based on the data it accrues through its tests. Google will always choose a spartan webpage that converts over a beautiful page that doesn't have the data to back it up.  
 -  Ben Parr
  

  Google has placed its faith in data, while Apple worships the power of design. This dichotomy made the two companies complementary. Apple would ship the phones and computers, while Google would provide Maps, Search, YouTube, and other web tools that made the devices more useful.  
 -  Ben Parr
  

  With DNS, it's possible to control key components of Internet navigation. Google already controls search, they are quickly gaining market share to control the browser, and when you put in DNS, it becomes the trifecta of complete navigational control.  
 -  David Ulevitch
  

  If people use Chrome, we make less money on our service and that's fine by us because that is fair competition. I wouldn't put Google on a pedestal for competition, but they aren't telling users not to use OpenDNS.  
 -  David Ulevitch
  

  Google has helped raise the importance of DNS above the network engineering community, which has been really good.  
 -  David Ulevitch
  

  There is no rivalry between Google and traditional advertising.  
 -  Maurice Saatchi
  

  All media owners want to attract advertising revenue. Google is no different.  
 -  Maurice Saatchi
  

  Whether it's Facebook or Google or the other companies, that basic principle that users should be able to see and control information about them that they themselves have revealed to the companies is not baked into how the companies work. But it's bigger than privacy. Privacy is about what you're willing to reveal about yourself.  
 -  Eli Pariser
  

  If you Google some sites about the link between vaccines and autism, you can very quickly find that Google is repeating back to you your view about whether that link exists and not what scientists know, which is that there isn't a link between vaccines and autism. It's a feedback loop that's invisible.  
 -  Eli Pariser
  

  I have over 2 million followers now on Google Plus.  
 -  Larry Page
  

  My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they're having a meaningful impact and are contributing to the good of society. As a world, we're doing a better job of that. My goal is for Google to lead, not follow that.  
 -  Larry Page
  

  We're at maybe 1% of what is possible. Despite the faster change, we're still moving slow relative to the opportunities we have. I think a lot of that is because of the negativity... Every story I read is Google vs someone else. That's boring. We should be focusing on building the things that don't exist.  
 -  Larry Page
  

  If you look at the history of how information flows, there was a time that newspapers were kind of in the place that Google and Facebook are now - how do we get more people to buy a copy? Then there was a shift in the early 20th century. They needed to do better, and readers and consumers demanded that of them.  
 -  Eli Pariser
  

  The next generation of innovators, who need neutrality the most, are not at the bargaining table. They're hard at work in their labs or classrooms, dreaming of the next big thing, and hoping that the Internet is as open to them as it was to the founders of Google.  
 -  Edward Felten
  

  Google actually relies on our users to help with our marketing. We have a very high percentage of our users who often tell others about our search engine.  
 -  Sergey Brin
  

  I Google everyone I meet and I look up designers.  
 -  Christian Siriano
  

  Google is a global Rorschach test. We see in it what we want to see. Google has built an infrastructure that makes a lot of dreams closer to reality.  
 -  John Battelle
  

  Some say Google is God. Others say Google is Satan. But if they think Google is too powerful, remember that with search engines unlike other companies, all it takes is a single click to go to another search engine.  
 -  Sergey Brin
  

  If I could edit Google Images, then I wouldn't be as scared of the Internet.  
 -  Chloe Sevigny
  

  Explore like safari, you know where ya girl be. If you wanna find me. Baby you can google me.  
 -  Teyana Taylor
  

  Go head & google me.  
 -  Teyana Taylor
  

  Whether it's Google or Apple or free software, we've got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.  
 -  Bill Gates
  

  I basically did all the library research for this book on Google, and it not only saved me enormous amounts of time but actually gave me a much richer offering of research in a shorter time.  
 -  Thomas Friedman
  

  Google, Microsoft and Yahoo should be developing new technologies to bypass government sensors and barriers to the Internet; but instead, they agreed to guard the gates themselves.  
 -  Tom Lantos
  

  We want Google to be the third half of your brain.  
 -  Sergey Brin
  

  I never Google myself. Only if I want to feel really terrible about myself would I do that.  
 -  Sienna Miller
  

  The only thing Google has failed to do, so far, is fail.  
 -  John Battelle
  

  A topless photo of Carla Bruni, the model turned current French first lady, was sold at auction Thursday for 91,000 dollars, to someone who is clearly not familiar with Google Image search.  
 -  Seth Meyers
  

  We want to make sure the thing you're looking for is on Google 100 percent of the time.  
 -  Eric Schmidt
  

  Half of Google's revenue comes from selling text-based ads that are placed near search results and are related to the topic of the search. Another half of its revenues come from licensing its search technology to companies like Yahoo.  
 -  Eric Schmidt
  

  The thing that people seem to miss about not just Google, but also our competitors, Yahoo, eBay and so forth, is that there's an awful lot of communities that have never been served by traditional media.  
 -  Eric Schmidt
  

  With Google I'm starting to burn out on knowing the answer to everything. People in the year 2020 are going to be nostalgic for the sensation of feeling clueless.  
 -  Doug Coupland
  

  I've learned to ignore everything. In the beginning, I thought I was too sensitive for this. I'd Google myself and it would freak me out. Now, I could care less if they say I'm pregnant with twins by my brother.  
 -  Kim Kardashian
  

  A music google search brought me to MySpace...Haven't been on this thing in years!  
 -  Alex Morgan
