Cost surge under new Google CEO unnerves Street

Investors are unhappy with increased spending at google.

That's what I figured was happening at google. Those core OS coders come at a much higher price than Ajax coders, and there are several companies bidding on the best of them now. It must be a nice position to be in. Page seems committed to a salary war.

Correct me if I'm laboring under misconceptions but it seems to me that:

• developing a OS takes the cream of the crop of engineering/coding talent. It also demands some pretty dang good interface designers and futurists. It must be somewhat of a finance drain. Probably not huge but ongoing and constant.

• dealing with multiple vendors, all clamoring for features that might or might not be reasonable, must be very distracting for management

• all of this for what seems little payback in terms of profits.

Maybe huger than I thought.
