While Google does have a Borg-like aspect, I think they do still need to innovate.

What is more, it's clear the founders are still very keen to push the limits of innovation.

Maybe, as has been said by others, they are not shutting this down but restricting it. In effect, they're replacing most of the 20% time with acquisitions but they do still have the process alive to enable some internal innovation.
