Google = No Love For Sci/Tech?

Wired is taking Google’s co-founder Larry Page to task on his statements that science has a serious “marketing problem.” While what Mr. Page says is absolutely true, Google seems to be part of the problem, if you go by the company’s news service.

Google co-founder Larry Page claims that science has a serious marketing problem, and yet his own company's news service heavily emphasizes consumer products and video games rather than educational material. As I write this, the sci/tech section of Google News is loaded with the stories about iMac upgrades and Grand Theft Auto, but not a single science article is in sight.
