How Google almost became a Mutual Fund

I recall reading about this last year, evidently still not resolved.

http://mutualfunds.about.com/od/news/a/google.htm
In 2006, Google almost became a mutual fund. To a fund investor, the king of search hardly seems like anything that resembles a mutual fund. And for those who follow Google (GOOG), getting used to Google being labeled media company is hard enough--but a mutual fund? How can this be?
