I completely agree.
There are very few companies capable of supporting both scale and maintaining customer service. The 3 I have used that always continue to impress me are Netflix, Zappos.com , and Woot (purchased by Amazon).
The primary thing that I believe drives these businesses and continues to make them successful is a culture of service in the company. You can't just make a big company better at customer service. It has to be a core component of the company from it's inception, otherwise it can't scale and remain authentic.

This has been my number one complaint about google since Gmail came out. I'm all-for small, service-oriented customer service. Google could more-than do this, though, if they were inclined.

Nailed it! I think my favorite "Web Scale" disservice is the Support Forum. This is where you can go and write a post about your problem and see if some other service user can help you. It's more like a Commiseration Forum.
