Google is launching a cell phone. Just what the world needs! Of course, Google's billionaires are just doing it to compete with the Apple iPhone which made Apple billionaires richer.
As TMobile is ready to roll out Google's phone, called G1, and people line up to buy it, Google founder Sergey Brin was asked about the new phone. He's been creating prototypes that do cool [useless] things. Don't believe me? Get this, a quote from Knowledge World magazine:
"His latest application allowed a Googler to throw an Android phone up in the air and it would measure the amount of time until he caught it."
This is why I'm dismayed by the misdirected talent of those with the most money and power to do something useful for society.
