  2. Well, history has a way of repeating itself, no? In other words, Microsoft is about to be overshadowed by Google, and then the US DoJ will sue them for monopolistic business practises, right? Right now there are a couple of highschool students hacking away at the next big thing and by the time they graduate from university, they will have created the foundation for Google’s nemesis.

    “May you live in interesting times…” a wise person once said.

  3. Actually I’d rather Google didn’t kill of Microsoft, thanks all the same. Whilst I have no doubt the Google know their “stuff” when it comes to internet specific apps, they just don’t have the know how of hardware support to get us through the next few years. Microsoft does.

    And no, I can’t believe I just said that either.

  4. Well . . .

    Google’s stated goal is the categorizing of all the information in the world.

    Paraphrased.

    There is a wide berth.

    The internet is fun, sure.
    But, according to it’s inventor,
    <smirk>Al Gore</smirk>
    this information is only on
    the super highway, and
    there are many, many other roads. . .

    What abhout the information transmitted
    on cell phones?
    in Medical Records?
    through Voting?

    We have seen phreakers have phun with phones.
    Medical records are sacrosanct – are they really private information?
    Voting is a privledge and a right now sought to be optimized through electronics.

    Google seems to forgotten this aspect of information:
    Self-Knowledge.

    I give them poor marks.

    Okay.
