    Gensler was not the architect for Denver International Airport. That was Fentress Bradburn. Gensler is currently working on a new hotel at the airport.

    Not sure I like the idea of a private airport. Some things should be kept out of private hands.

    It’s a private airport for THEM. I don’t get your complaint or how it makes any sense at all.

    Mark my words. It is going to crash like a lead zeppelin...

    I heard that Google has a fleet of private jets for their business, like any company like this, how does that bring value to share holders. I wonder how many apple owns, we know they rented Steve Private jet, do that own any other their own.

    Yeah these 3 are using their own money but you can bet google will house their jet there and those 3 will make money off google renting space.

    Google won't technically own that space, It's being leased by Signature Flight Support and FWIW will also be used by some other wealthy corporations in the valley. I've heard there's a couple pretty well-to-do ones around that area. :D
    BTW I found an article last night saying that Google had no aircraft of their own. Between Page, Brin and Schmidt they have at least 8 and all under a separate corporation which isn't unusual.

    Apple bought a circa $53 million Gulfstream V private jet for Steve Jobs, and I'm pretty sure they got their money's worth out of it :).

    True, that looks practically restrained compared to a 737, but don't think this is anything but a minor bump on Google's vast resources. If you consider how vital the founders are for Google's success, I really wouldn't begrudge them their toys even if the company is paying for them.

    TSA searches your body, Google searches everything else.

    Considering that a new Gulfstream G650 costs around $65 million, the $82 million dollar Air Terminal is a drop in the proverbial bucket!

    After Nest telling Google when you are not at home ... it will be trackable hearing aids, contact lenses next ... just wait, it won't be long before Google can hear and see whatever a wearer can see or hear ...

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Haha, I was going to say the same about fascism.
