Google held its annual shareholder meeting yesterday at the Googleplex, and Andy Beal has done a great job in breaking down what happened there, in four easy pieces:
- Google Press Meeting Part 1 - Acquisitions – Google CEO Eric Schmidt says Google is now more comfortable thinking about buying big businesses, but will not get into the content business.
- Google Press Meeting Part 2 - Software – a new corporate mantra: “Search, Ads and Apps”
- Google Press Meeting Part 3 - Stock Split – No plans for a stock split.
- Google Press Meeting Part 4 - Censorship – stockholders voted to allow Google to censor its results in order to continue operating in China.
