Google’s Desktop Offensive?

    May 12, 2006

Wow, it’s amazing how, adding a “question mark” to the title of BusinessWeek’s recap of Google’s new product launch, changes the entire meaning, while still remaining strangely relevant. :-)

Anyway, the meat of the story: Google’s threatened by Microsoft; the new products help Google get in front of many web surfers before they actually “search”; all while making lots of extra money for the company.

Yay for capitalism. But still, Google’s missing out on something. 😉
