Well we all love speculating what Google will do next… in fact there is probably more interest and hype about Google, than what modern movie stars and starlets are up to – well maybe if you are a search enthusiast like most reading this article and me writing it.
Anyway, in my surfing of the ‘net this week, 2 great rumours grabbed my attention from a Google Addiction blog site.
Google’s G: Drive
Well firstly Google TV. Let’s face it – it was only a matter of time before the search engines entered the TV marketplace. I am actually surprised it has taken this long. It was mentioned that Google has secured www.googletv.com, www.googledhtv.com and many others. It is the logical step for internet search to be all encompassing with regards to media – so TV was sure to follow. It won’t be long before we see www.yahootv.com and www.msntv.com. Well MSN are already entering the space with their Xbox 360 program – an integrated home multimedia system with search capabilities.
Secondly – Google’s G: Drive. What an idea, endless space in cyberspace to store all your files so that you have access to your documents wherever you are. And it will be as easy as setting up a G: drive on your computer that accesses your internet based disk drive. Now that’s mobility! But who benefits more from this? Think about it – is it not bad enough that Google knows so much about us. Imagine if they stored all our files and important documents. Remember – Knowledge is Power!!
Anyway, that’s this instalment of the G-Files: Google’s rumour train – full steam ahead.
