In this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I talk Google, its quarter and how it threw Comscore under the bus a bit and delivered an impressive one-day stock gain. Meanwhile, Google's stellar financials may have Microsoft yearning for Yahoo even more.
Also this Mac clone thing was just downright weird. A Florida company called Psystar is making Mac clones and generating plenty of buzz.
