By Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Google Inc plans to keep making ambitious and costly bets on futuristic products, even if it means shelving some of its most beloved projects. The Internet search company acknowledged for the first time on Thursday major problems with its Google Glass wearable computer, noting that it was time for a "pause" and a strategy "reset." The comments by Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette during Thursday's quarterly results conference call struck a decidedly different tone from Google's talk earlier this month of Glass "graduating" from the company's labs into a separate division. Pichette's admission of Glass' failings was particularly noteworthy given that the product has been long championed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. As growth in Google's main search advertising business slows, the company needs to reassure investors it can make clear and sober investment decisions, analysts said.
