Re: but lack of innovation is not one of them.

Google did have some tech innovations such as non-locking distributed data updating. Basically their crawlers updating the search database while large volumes of queries were being run against that data.

Their labs projects were quite innovative too.

They shut most of that down now years ago but their profits continue to grow, their deceitfulness about spying/data collection grows, and their tax avoidance activities flourish.
