    own little version?

    Wow!

    Try ... fastest growth of a social site

    Try ... sharing vid chat with 9 others, and can share videos and chat at the same time

    Try ... businesses cannot send you messages unless you allow.

    Try ... games are not in your face.

    Try ... you don't have to wait for someone to friend you back to send them a message

    These are just some of the major differences and make G+ not a copy.

      Exactly.

      Tom said. “Facebook is certainly being competitive and trying to build their own little version of MySpace, but when I look at Microsoft I a company who is extremely aligned with us.”

    doing one thing really well

    For anybody who had read Google's "about us" corporate fluff, that is indeed a sly dig.

    Shame it's from someone whose baby makes the Googleplex look positively saintly in comparison.

      FAIL

      Rubbish.

      The facebook lists feature was around long before G+ arrived on the scene, it just wasn't heavily documented or used. I used it though and still think it's a brilliant idea and I'm glad it's getting the press it deserves.

    no ... b itches suffix?

    Does that mean Zuck is a grown up now?

    who cut off google?

    And who was it who cut off google from accessing facebook contacts? Facebook! And they want to build partnerships?

    If you zuckersuckers don't quit moaning about poaching your personal information and pissing you off in general, Markie-poo might go into another snit and kill Faecesbook off altogether and spend his billions cornering the reconstituted petrified dogturd market. (He's very entrepeneurial, don't y'all know?)

    What a weasel

    This is just a weaselly way of saying he doesn't want any competitors, he just wants everyone to use Facebook. I'm sure he'd love that. I wouldn't.

    Dunno about everyone else, but ol' Zuck just seems a bit slimy. Even worse than Gates.

    However, he obviously sees the writing on the (facebook) wall....

    "Don't be evil" sure beats "Gimme all your details so I can sell them"

    At least we *know* Google sells ads.

    Tw@t - re:Amazon and Apple

    Neither of them get their revenue primarily from adverts and info about customers as Facebook and Google do. They sell physical stuff.

    I'm not sure if he's meaning to suggest that Google should go and develop products for direct revenue to diversify away from the ad/data space, but given that Google have been in that space a lot longer than he has, I'd suggest he follow that advice himself.
