    Excerpts from Business Week Article.

    The suits inside Google don't fare much better than the outside pros.
    Several current and former insiders say there's a caste system, in
    which business types are second-class citizens to Google's valued code
    jockeys. They argue that it could prove to be a big challenge in the
    future as Google seeks to maintain its growth. They deem the corporate
    development team as underpowered in the company, with engineers and
    product managers tending to carry more clout than salesmen and
    dealmakers.


    Cheers!

    Not for long. Trust me. No technical company to date has been able to
    pull this off and I doubt Google will be able to handle it. Look how
    they handled the Cnet reporter issue.
