Is Google today's General Electric? http://on.ft.com/15JXK2b
Our chief business commentator, John Gapper, argues: "Google seems to me not Microsoft in the 1980s but General Electric in the late 19th century – the age of electrification. Like GE, Google is a multifaceted industrial enterprise riding a wave of technology with an uncanny ability not only to invent far-reaching products but also to produce them commercially."

Like bankers, tech company leaders often exude a sense of entitlement, argues our management editor. Although their products are still popular, Apple, Google and Amazon are under attack by politicians for their tax arrangements. Activists, meanwhile, worry about privacy and cheap labour. Should the tech sector brace for a potential populist backlash?
