Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, spoke at the Edinburgh International Television Festival in hopes of building partnerships with the TV industry.
Eric Schmidt wants everybody to like Google. And why not when you generate £2bn in revenues from the UK, with very little regulation to get in the way? He comes to Edinburgh’s annual television festival to be friends with everybody in broadcasting, and becomes slightly controversial when he reminds us that Britain remains rubbish at computing and engineering. Which is worth saying, except there is a little more to the Google story than that.
