Google sells drinks
By Techgirl

Google is my favourite search engine and has 80 percent of the market in India.

Understandably, Google earns billions and is one of the most sought after places to work at.  A couple of years ago Google share prices rose to US $700.  Last year, you could buy a share for US $520.  In the current economic meltdown each share has slumped to $370.  Despite a good third quarter financial results, Google shares have yet to regain their true market value.

Tough times in the tech industry.

How tough?  A road side stall looking suspiciously like Google was spotted in Mumbai selling golas and sherbets. 

If our desi bhais are the original article and thought up the idea first, perhaps they can sue Google in USA for plagiarizing their logo and design.

What Google can inspire, Indian search engine Guruji can do better for a ‘local audience’.  Expect Guruji inspired stalls on our roads as well.

Techgoss would like to thank Satish Vijaykumar of BombayLives for allowing us to use his photos
