Exclusive insights into the most powerful corporation of the world

Via smartphone, internet search or navigation – Google is our gateway to the world. At the same time Google is considered to be overly powerful and insatiable. Especially in Germany the corporation struggles with image problems, now even the EU wants to get active against Google. But the corporation has begun to change. The corporate management firmly believes to be able to change the world for the better through technology. Therefore, the management converts the corporation step by step into a future machine. In Google‘s laboratories and research departments they work on self-driving cars, quantal-computers, cancer therapies, and a delivery service by drones from the air. Google-Software is going to operate even cars, home appliances, and self-developed robots. Satellites and balloons at the space border are supposed to supply the whole planet with internet.
