With Google announcing their plans for ultra-fast high speed(gig/sec) Internet connection experiment, I can’t help but wonder what’s next on their list to conquer. (see video below(nice friendly blue shirt guy))
1. Internet search and advertising.
2. Smart phones.
They’ve already Got 1 down. They are THE search engine with a ginormous advertising network. They’ve managed to implant themselves into everyday lingo and life. Have you googled yourself lately.
At last look, google android phones are all over the place now with each of the major cell phone networks sporting one or two new phones with the OS in the last few months and popularity in the devices increasing rapidly. (I have a G1 and it’s a great phone). So number 2 is on it’s way.
Now if they can get this ultra high speed Internet thing going(number 3)…who wouldn’t want to be able to use the kind of applications possible with that kind of speed. And who would control this kind of technology, but the people who develop and perfect it.
They should be on there way to what(number 4)…
Ok maybe not, but it kind of reminds me of the first part of one of those action/thriller movies where the seemingly good intentioned company climbs onto the scene and starts to take over everyday life with a series of well placed and well timed moves until the general public is finally aware how much we depend upon them and by that time it’s all too late(for us at least).
Ok, Google’s not the Antichrist…Like I said the I have a G1 and the operating system is great…I love it, but news like this especially coupled with their competition with Facebook and other social media sites, see recent releases about google buzz, give them that trying to take over the world look to me.
I’m sure it’s all very innocent. I mean, what are they supposed to do, just go out and be happy with what they have and not try and grow. It just looks a little scary…good for them.
Just an update to this blog…
Just found this interesting post on twitter…thanks Tech Crunch for adding to the mounting evidence that supports my theory that google is…
PLANNING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!
