But, it was Google boss Larry Page answering a question about whether and when the "Web" might surpass "The Internet" as the central online platform for everything. In his answer, Page reportedly said that while he's excited about where the Web is going that he's personally "quite sad" at the way some companies have behaved.
He mentioned Microsoft (MSFT) by name explaining how they had taken advantage of certain interoperability conflicting with instant messaging, for instance. "You can't have people milking off just one company," he said. He went on to talk about negativity and how Google has struggles with people like Microsoft". He ended the thought by saying "We have a great relationship with Microsoft".
Luckily, the bulk of today's session was positive news about innovation and what we can expect next from Google.
