Their strategy is to try out lots of cool ideas and hope that some of them take off.
Calling that a "strategy" is a bit far-fetched ;-)

I don't doubt there are great engineers at GOOG.
But somebody has to give them direction (I'm more of a sysadmin than an engineer - but even I get that). Else it ends like Nest (article above) or Motorola.
Any outcome where Nest doesn't end on the firesale-table would really surprise me.
