It's been some time coming, but Google (GOOG -1.9%) makes its first trip into the bond market with a planned $3B sale that should be "scooped up like nobody's business." The company had $35B in cash and marketable securities at 2010's end, but will pay back short-term borrowings as investment-grade borrowing costs are about the lowest since November.
