Today, the New York Times released an article about how Google is becoming an even bigger superpower than it already is. The article came out directly following Google’s announcement about plans to release an addition 14 million shares of stock and the release of their new chat client called Talk. Of course, there are going to be critics of any underdog turn huge but I’m wondering if there is any truth in what some of the folks in Silicon Valley are saying?
At first, I was trying to figure out how exactly they were Microsoft-like. And I have decided I don’t know nearly about Microsoft and/or its history. Nor do I know enough about where Google plans to go. That makes this really hard to compare the two.
Today, I’d like to hopefully open up a discussion regarding the NYT article and whether or not Google can be compared to Microsoft and if folks feel that they’re spreading themselves too thin. I have selfish reasons, I won’t deny. I want to expand my knowledge.
