I liked this episode. Google AD words and how ad words help small businesses compete with large business was very interesting. A small custom made boot company purchased AD words and immediately started seeing an increase in orders. The company maintain good satisification levels with its customers and its website received a high quality rating. The quality rating helped the company move to the top of the search results. The Founder's son said, that he has to turn of the AD words because they would be overwhelmed with orders if they did not regulate the customer demand.

I thought Google explained their privacy policy, ok. I think Google should have a feature that allows the users manage their history content. Is Google a search engine or a research tool for seeing what people are interested in? Companies want to know.

Will Google be the real time, mix reality search engine of the future? Will google be able to tell you high level summaries of content that you want information about? Will google then be able to build supporting detail abstraction of data from numerous source give the user a complete picture of the topic? For example, if I ask, who were the "Olmecs" will google give me a concise description, but if I ask "What was the Chinese influence in the Olmec culture?" will google then start gather research paper content and ranking the content according to relevance and popularity?

Will Google be able to recognize objects and provide information about the object? Will you be able to talk with google about the object and get different analysis about the object and comparisons between other objects? for example, can I look at Roundup weed killers and ask how this herbicide compares against other weed killers? Will I be able to ask where I can buy Roundup for the cheapest price? Will retailers compete for my business based on my interest?

This show talks about how a mention on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" can keep a failing business alive or make sales increase hundreds of times over. It's gushy, like watching "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" back in the 1980s. However, this kind of fantasy-based, everything-is-wonderful reporting is what many people value about Oprah's famous show.

However, her talk show is now not on ABC. She has her Oxygen channel, which if I understand correctly, is not doing well. In short, this program was televised before Oprah's struggles, or dare I say it, decline.

Plus, it doesn't show Oprah's misses. It didn't talk about how the "Beloved" film flopped. That's understandable as this show is how Oprah makes OTHER's wares explode. However, it doesn't touch the "1000 Little Pieces" controversy, in which an author who said he reported on his real life was later forced to admit some things were fabricated. If I recall correctly, one (male) author didn't want to be selected for Oprah's book club because he feared that would make him overly commercial and endanger his chances of winning highbrow literary awards.

This show covered the rose and ignored the thorns. If you want all positivity, then you make enjoy it. If you want something more realistic, it may disappoint you greatly.

I loved this documentary. I am African American; I don't use this product. However, I loved the continued pushing, the persistence that Mr. John Paul DeJoria illustrates here. He confronted his obstacles one at a time. Marriage upset, rejection of his products, homeless and others. Going back was not an option. I absolutely love the pay it forward section at the end.

I PURCHASED THIS SHOW BECAUSE MY WIFE AND I DESPERATELY NEEDED A COMEDY. WE GOOFED IN OUR SELECTION OF A COMEDY. INSTEAD WE GOT A CLEAR VIEW OF THE ROLE OF GREED & CUPIDITY IN THE FUNCTION (MIS-FUNCTION) OF OUR SOCIETY. IN THIS BLACK COMEDY, THERE ARE ESSENTIALLY NO "WHITE HATS"! EVERYONE IS A "BLACK HAT". FROM THE CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR OF PEOPLE SELLING PACKAGED GARBAGE AS ITEMS OF GROWTH & GREAT VALUE TO THE MANY PEOPLE, DRIVEN BY CUPIDITY, WHO SPENT WHAT THE DID NOT & WOULD NOT HAVE. ALL WERE IN A DREAM WORLD OF MADNESS! MY FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE INTERVIEW WITH GREENSPAN WAS VERY NEGATIVE. THEN, A DAY LATER, I REALIZED THAT HE WAS THINKING RATHER DEEPLY ABOUT THE VOYAGE OF THE SHIP OF FOOLS. A JOURNEY THAT IS NOT SUBJECT TO ANY VERY CLEAR ROLE OF STEWARDSHIP, EXCEPT, POSSIBLY, TO AVOID THE ROCKS!

Eveyone should see this video. We the people are paying for the mess of the greedy. Though, people do bite off more than they can chew as well. This video shows how wall-street bought and sold our mortgages on our homes to make money. I recomend this to anyone who wants more info on how the housing market,wallstreet and loans messed people and the economy up.
