Probably true. I do admire them, along with the founders of Twitter and FB, they are the latest generation of the American technological entrepreneurs, coming into light 25 years after those two guys from Seattle established a company in Redmond, WA or those 4 guys, I believe the names were Ed Oates, Bob Miner, Bruce Scott and Larry Ellison, which established something called "Relational Software Inc". RSI was founded almost exactly a year after Microsoft and it grew to the admirable size, after it renamed itself to Oracle Corp. Page and Brin also created an empire, through the seemingly innocuous device like the search engine. These days, they practically own the Internet. To tell the truth, Oracle tried something called Network Computer before, but it wasn't too attractive and it wasn't that cheap, either, but I do have to give it to Larry Ellison that he had the right vision.
