Back at CES in January, Google put on a big show with the launch of a new product category designed to take on Amazon’s Echo Show and Spot. Google itself, on the other hand, was conspicuously absent. The company seemed content to rely on third-party hardware makers to do the heavy lifting in taking on Amazon.

Alphabet invested $375 million into Oscar Health, which is run by Joshua Kushner. DoorDash, the food delivery business, raised $250 million to support its rapid geographic expansion.

At the company's weekly all-staff meeting, the project was discussed by co-founder Sergey Brin -- the very executive most closely associated with the decision in 2010 to pull out of China. It was a widely lauded move by Google managers, led by Brin, who argued that they'd rather leave than subject their search tool to China's stringent rules that filter out politically sensitive results, such as the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.

Early in 2011, two top engineers for Google traveled together to Detroit on what amounted to a diplomatic mission. “The idea was, if you’re going to make self-driving cars, you have to work with a car company,” recalls Chris Urmson, who made the trip with fellow engineer Anthony Levandowski. In meetings with a prime parts supplier to the car makers and then with the senior leadership of a major auto company, the pair gave presentations on their vehicle’s capabilities, the number of miles it had driven and the broad strokes of how their self-driving software saw the road.

A privacy group said in a letter sent to the Federal Trade Commission on Friday that Google has violated the terms of a 2011 settlement because of practices exposed in an Associated Press report this week. The Electronic Privacy Information Center said in the letter to the FTC that Google's recording of time-stamped location data — even after users have turned off a setting called Location History — "clearly violates" the 2011 settlement. The center lobbied the FTC to take action on Google nearly a decade ago.
