Google's (GOOG) stock split doesn't go down well with corporate governance experts, but that kind of power looks more attractive in light of Facebook’s Instagram acquisition: “In full control, CEO Mark Zuckerberg appears to have conceived and pulled the trigger on the $1B deal over a weekend. [Larry Page and Sergey Brin] would like to maintain their ability to make similar moves.”

    Great maybe they can find another dog like Groupon to try to throw away 6 Billion dollars @. Seriously, their ability to hit home runs is suspect. Zuckerberg is on the cutting edge and the next Steve Jobs.

    Zuckerberg just spent $1 billion on a company that can't make money. This is cutting edge?

     

    Look at Apple's acquisitions under Jobs. FingerWorks, PA Semi, Lala, Siri, Anobit, etc. Which of these is an Instagram or a Groupon?

    If you don't like how the company is run, one can:
    Get on the board.
    Sell one's holdings in the stock.

    Google's acquisition track record is actually pretty extraordinary: Android, Youtube, Doubleclick, Admob are the biggest ones and all have been enormous successes. We still need to see about ITA, Zagat, and (of course) Motorolla, but I'm not sure why we're not giving the company the benefit of the doubt.
