NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- For the last several years analysts have busied themselves looking for the next Steve Jobs, the next Bill Gates. But Google ( GOOG) CEO Larry Page already puts both of those tech legends to shame. As Gandalf says near the end of Lord of the Rings, "Now come the days of the king." The name of the king is Larry Page. Gates' Microsoft ( MSFT) defined the look and feel of PC computing. Jobs' Apple ( AAPL) has defined the look and feel of its successor, device computing. Page's Google is defining the look and feel of the global Internet. Which niche do you think is biggest? Microsoft built a campus, and Apple is building what looks like a spaceship. Google has had the Googleplex for so long a movie has been made about it: The Internship. (They made the movie in Atlanta, by the way -- no Googleplexes were harmed.)

The effort to protect privacy by making mugshots harder to find online is driven by Google. When Google sneezes, the business world catches cold.
