Google Gunning for Paypal

    March 17, 2006

I spoke to David Miller of yesterday and shared with him my thoughts on Google’s new payment processing service.

“PayPal also got a huge shot in the arm from eBay. So with that much clout, it was difficult for anybody to challenge PayPal. But now here comes the 800-pound gorilla called Google. They have got the clout to do this. It’s a natural extension of what they’ve been doing,” said Beal.

You gotta love those opportunities to use the old “800-pound gorilla” soundbite. 😉
