Google Inc. (GOOG) Posts Rare Ad on Its Homepage [Insider Monkey]

Google implicitly says "I'm feeling plucky..." especially since new tablets from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple are expected over the next few weeks
"At least it wasn’t for some other company’s product. It was for its own – Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) is selling up is Nexus 7 tablet, which it is planning to sell for $199. It is the first time that Google has posted an advertisement on its home page, except for the occasional link to the company’s proprietary Chrome browser. Considering that Google has resisted the temptation to place advertising in the past and now is doing so for its own product, it seems pretty apparent that Google is determined to make some inroads in the burgeoning – nee, exploding – tablet market, of which the Nexus tablet has yet to really take hold."
