Please watch this video that appeared in Bloomberg. Also read this article about Google in the cover story of Businessweek on December 8, 2016. The article essentially argues that Google makes all its money from “search”, and implies that all its other ventures (which it snarkily terms “moonshot businesses”) are a potential waste.
