Google - The empire

| No TrackBacks

I'm sure most of you are already familiar with the power of Google. I consider the search engine a ubiquitous tool, that I could scarcely imagine doing without. However, Google has many other very cool tools which most people have not yet discovered(ie. Gmail, Google-Talk, Google Maps, Froogle, etc). The article below attempts to compare Google's growth with that Redmond company that I love to hate.

For the record, I do not worry about the rapid growth of Google, because their success is based upon Open Source technologies, which do not lend themselves to vendor lock-in.
