Larry Page: "Nothing seriously wrong" with health Amid concerns that there is may be something seriously wrong with him, Google CEO Larry Page has told employees that there is "nothing seriously wrong with me."
Page has an unspecified condition that affects his vocal chords and will keep from speaking at Google's important I/O event and forced him to miss the annual shareholder's meeting.

Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt told the media and shareholders at the meeting that Page had "lost his voice" without elaborating.

The company says Page still runs the everyday business, but has been asked to rest his voice by physicians.

Thanks to former Apple CEO Steve Job's ongoing health concerns before his passing last year, whenever major executives miss prolonged periods of time there is a bigger spotlight placed on them, and not only by investors/shareholders.

I hope he is ok, Google can't be left in the control of Schmidt.

Let's be honest, isn't there 'something wrong' with just about everyone... Joking aside, a person's medical condition is their business & other than to say you're 'under the weather' is good enough, unless more information is deemed necessary. Necessary being the afflicted person not the recently drama douched dumbass.

When a company rides on one person and sells stock, they are almost in violation of the law to withhold information relating to that person and their ability to keep the company successful. Not really the case here, but I bet some Apple insiders are technically guilty of insider trading for selling stock based on personal knowledge of the great deceiver's health.

I wasn't aware that Page was possibly a similar figurehead like that of Jobs. Although, I would like to think Page actually brought something to the original table (like a tangible programming talent) when ideas were flying around.

But then I'm just going off on another tangent...
