    Very unlike the NYT/Globe, Google’s core business is well-run, thus it is setting on a metric bleepload of cash and can easily afford to take a longer view of a money-losing operation that it thinks will be very profitable in the future.That’s rather different from losing a pile of money because you have incompetents running a company whose business model is going the way of buggy-whip companies.
