More fun.

Earthquake stock compensation that will vest over four years.

We just got information about new c.e.o. of microsoft is $1.2 million.

He's got a lot of hard work to do but why pay earthquake $100 million?

I come at it from the view that eric schmidt is worth $1.2 billion.

It's a huge amount of money for everyone else and commump change for him.

It raises the question why.

Eric is an important person for the company.

He travels for them and represents the company.

It's a brand the company wants.

It's hard to explain those dollars when someone has more money than you could spend in a lifetime.

And rick at yahoo!

Making $109 for 14 months worth of work.

I don't get that.

The numbers are silly.

Why would he lose goggle.

What is he giving up?

You can understand how that carrot was offered.

You don't think that's ridiculous for a company in the middle of a turn around.

If they think he's going to make them that much money, it wouldn't be a bad idea.

Eric schmidt was in the area forever.

Most of that wealth was created at google.

You wonder if part of their decision making process was what would it cost us if he leaves.

You have to weigh that with how much scrutiny are we inviting by paying him this much money especially with google in this inquality debate.

When you make things like this public, it's only going to cause you more heart ache.

Another google story.
