Music isn’t mentioned in the Financial Times’ latest interview with Google CEO Larry Page, but it’s a worthwhile read for anyone wanting to understand some of the driving forces behind his company as a whole. Or, as it turns out, driving questions: “We’re in a bit of uncharted territory. We’re trying to figure it out.

He also repeats the defence he offered Apple’s Steve Jobs when the latter criticised Google for “doing too much stuff”, saying that: “It’s unsatisfying to have all these people, and we have all these billions we should be investing to make people’s lives better. If we just do the same things we did before and don’t do something new, it seems like a crime to me.”
