the power of Google

29th April, 2009 - 1 minute read

There has been a lot written about Google and the power that it wealds. Like it is some sort of monster squashing everything in its path.

Latest complains seem to revolve around its ‘Street Views’ application. In the U.K. there has been complaints about, among other things, a picture of someone throwing up at the side of the road.

In my opinion people are missing the point. Google is always trying to add value to a free service, in the hope that it will keep our custom. I, for one, think that Google is an endless stream of information.

Who hasn’t Googled Google to find out some trivial info, or where to go to visit x, y or z. I think Google is fab and maybe all they are guilty of thinking outside the box. Their primary goal is to stay popular. So you can always expect more from this inventive, if not always focused, group.
