Last year, in his former role as the search giant's co-president, Google's new CEO made just a $1 salary. That's what he and the rest of the search giant's "triumvirate" -- Page, Sergey Brin, and Eric Schmidt -- have been taking home since 2005.
Page skips most Google perks, including the company's 401(k) match. But there's one perk he decided to keep: Like all Google employees, Page took home a holiday bonus of $1,785, which amounts to $1,000 after taxes.
You don't have to work at Oracle or Apple to be among the top-paid executives in the technology industry, but it helps.
