The Latest Trip To North Korea... with Eric Schmitt & Bill Richardson!!! It might not get weirder than this...As you will see ... this is a truly a separate reality… ( And I thought what goes on in DC was bizarre…. ) I guess that both Pyongyang and DC both have their very own special kind of... Egocentric-power-hungry-rule-the-world-type-of-Magic.!!! ~
Tell me if I am wrong... but, doesn't it seem that there are, many parallels with the goals and direction that the Government of North Korea has in common with our own Government here in the USA?
(1) It seems both countries both have out of control Military Industrial Arms Complex Budgets.
(2) In North Korea to pay for all those Weapons and their Army ~ they just starve their Citizens…..
(3) And OMG !!!!! look at what's on the chopping block over here!!! Entitlements and forced Austerity of all our citizens coming soon to you !!!
How odd.... Such strange bed fellows? But when it comes to the bottom line... I am 100% sure the corporate industrialist war machine here in the USA $$$ really think that the Business model of North Korea is something to be admired…
Hey, maybe Schmitt and Richardson were over there to get pointers on new ways on how to screw the US Citizens?
Just a thought….

Google's chairman Eric Schmidt yesterday in an interview at the D9 conference said that he was responsible for why Google did not do well in the social networking business. Eric in an interview with Kara Swisher of All things Digital said that the industry took Google by surprise, especially Facebook and he failed to foresee the world of social networking.
Eric also called technology world as a “Gang of Four” indicating four companies that dominate the industry in their own special way. These companies are Google, Facebook, Apple and Amazon. He did not mention Microsoft. When asked about Facebook, he said, “Facebook’s done a number of things which I admire. It’s the first generally available way of disambiguating identity. Historically, on the Internet such a fundamental service wouldn’t be owned by a single company. I think the industry would benefit from an alternative to that.”

Eric E. Schmidt’s new job as executive chairman of Google came with a very nice raise.

Eric Schmidt will now make $1.25 million a year with a potential $6 million annual bonus.Mr. Schmidt, who as chief executive of Google had been earning just $1 a year since 2005 (though his ownership stake in the company is worth several billion dollars), will now earn $1.25 million a year with a potential $6 million annual bonus, according to a regulatory filing Tuesday by Google.
That is on top of the $100 million in stock options that he was given as a parting gift in January, when Google announced that he would step down as chief executive in April. But those options vest only if he stays at the company until 2015.
Mr. Schmidt’s new salary and stock options might be as much of a thank-you gift as an incentive to stick around, amid rumors that he is being considered by President Obama for the role of commerce secretary. It could also be an acknowledgement that his biggest new responsibility — governmental relations — will be a tough one as an antitrust battle heats up.
His raise follows an earnings announcement that disappointed investors. Google’s expenses soared and its new chief executive, Larry Page, frustrated analysts by speaking only briefly and vaguely. Google’s stock price is down 10 percent since then.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who recently took a medical leave of absence from his company, and Google chief executive Eric Schmidt will be among the attendees of President Obama's event with business leaders in San Francisco Thursday evening, a source familiar with the event tells ABC News.
Earlier today, ABC News reported that one attendee would be 26-year-old founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, according to a source familiar with the meeting.
Jobs has been the subject of tabloid rumors and rampant speculation about his health since announcing last month that was taking a medical leave for undisclosed reasons.
Schmidt on Tuesday told a conference he was "very, very proud" of Google executive Wael Ghonim, who helped organize the Egypt protests that resulted in President Mubarak leaving office.
Schmidt himself will step down in April as Google co-founder Larry Page becomes CEO.
Jobs, Schmidt and Zuckerberg will be among many business leaders in technology and innovation the president will sit down and talk to, as he continues to sell his State of the Union message.
“The president and the business leaders will discuss our shared goal of promoting American innovation, and discuss his commitment to new investments in research and development, education and clean energy,” a White House official said.
GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, whom last month President Obama named as chairman of the new White House Council on Jobs and Competititveness, also will be there, a source said.Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who recently took a medical leave of absence from his company,... more

Schmidt to step down as Google CEO
By David Goldman, staff writer
January 20, 2011: 6:02 PM ET
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Eric Schmidt will step down from his role as Google's CEO in April and be replaced by co-founder Larry Page.
Schmidt, who joined Google in 2001 to become its chief executive, will stay on as executive chairman after he leaves his CEO role on April 4. According to the company, he will focus on deals, partnerships, customers and broader business relationships, government outreach and technology thought leadership. He will also continue to act as an advisor to co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
"We've been talking about how best to simplify our management structure and speed up decision making for a long time," Schmidt said in a prepared statement. "By clarifying our individual roles we'll create clearer responsibility and accountability at the top of the company."
His Twitter comment on the shuffle was less formal: "Day-to-day adult supervision no longer needed!," he wrote.
On a conference call with analysts, Schmidt said he's excited about the change, because the more strategic role will give him "a chance to work on the things I'm most interested in." He expects it to be "a significant improvement in the things that I can do in my time."
The surprise move shocked the tech industry. Schmidt, Page and Brin have long run Google as a trio, an approach they spelled out in an "owner's manual" included in the company's 2004 IPO filing.
"We run Google as a triumvirate," Page and Brin wrote. "The three of us run the company collaboratively with Sergey and me as presidents. The structure is unconventional, but we have worked successfully in this way."
Schmidt said he doesn't anticipate any material change in strategy. "We tend to agree on everything," he noted.
But he said he believes the new management structure will speed up decision making at the company. Google has lost some of its top minds in the past several months, and a common complaint is that good ideas require too many steps to get approved.
Page, Google's founding CEO, served as chief executive from 1998 to 2001. He will once again take charge of the company's day-to-day operations, and he will also be in charge of Google's product development and technology strategy. Brin, Google's other co-founder, will continue to work on Google's new projects, but will no longer serve as a company president.
About Schmidt's tenure, Page said Google's results over the past decade "speak for themselves."
Schmidt returned the compliment, saying Thursday that Page is "ready to lead."
Another strong quarter
Also Thursday, Google reported a quarterly profit and sales that rose from year-ago results and beat Wall Street's forecasts.
The world's online search leader said its net income in the fourth quarter rose to $2.5 billion, up 29% from a year earlier.
Results included one-time charges of 94 cents per share. Without the charges, Google said it earned $8.75 per share. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, who typically exclude one-time items from their estimates, forecasted earnings of $8.10 per share.
Profit rose as both the number of clicks on Google's ads and the amount that advertising partners pay per click increased by a healthy margin: Paid clicks rose 18% and cost per click grew 5% over last year.
Sales for the Mountain View, Calif., company rose 26% to $8.4 billion. Excluding advertising sales that Google shares with partners, a figure also known as traffic acquisition costs, the company reported revenue of $6.3 billion, which topped analysts' forecasts of $6.1 billion.
Google noted that new products like mobile and display advertising continue to perform very well. YouTube's revenue more than doubled in 2010.
"Our strong performance has been driven by a rapidly growing digital economy ... and by the extraordinary momentum of our newer businesses, such as display and mobile," Schmidt said about Google's quarter. "These results give us the optimism and confidence to invest heavily in future growth."
With that rosy outlook, Google added more than 1,000 employees to its staff during the quarter and now employs 24,400 people.
Shares of Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) rose 2% after hours.

Google Inc. co-founder Larry Page is taking over as CEO in an unexpected shake-up that upstaged the Internet search leader's fourth-quarter earnings.
Page, 37, is reclaiming the top job from Eric Schmidt, who had been brought in as CEO a decade ago because Google's investors believed the company needed a more mature leader.
Schmidt, 55, will remain an adviser to Page and Google's other co-founder, Sergey Brin, as Google's executive chairman.
The changes will be effective April 4.
"In my clear opinion, Larry is ready to lead and I'm excited about working with both him and Sergey for a long time to come," Schmidt said.
Page praised Schmidt, too. "There is no other CEO in the world that could have kept such headstrong founders so deeply involved and still run the business so brilliantly," Page said.
"Eric is a tremendous leader and I have learned innumerable lessons from him"
The change in command overshadowed Google's fourth-quarter earnings, which soared past analysts' estimates as the company cranked up its Internet marketing machine during the holiday shopping season.
Shares rose $9.18, or 1.5 percent, to $635.95 in extended trading after the announcement. In the regular session earlier, the stock fell $4.98, or 0.8 percent, to close at $626.77.Google Inc. co-founder Larry Page is taking over as CEO in an unexpected shake-up that... more
