Anyone else notice Google is/has taken over the internet?
from docs to earth to sketchup to android. Soon to be Google TV and a free Google web bases OS. They are undermining Microsoft and Apple in certain departments.
Is it unhealthy for a company to become so large and far reaching? or are their ideas and products simply of a higher value?

As long as they don't turn into an evil corporation like Microsoft, it should be alright.

It pisses me off that everything is google. Like google accounts everything, even youtube. Since my youtube is under my yahoo email, I cannot be signed on on youtube, and check my gmail (main email, the one I use to talk to mom, and get school updates)
I'm sick of it. I used to use google search engines, and I hate bing with a passion, but it, and yahoo search are the lesser evils.

yes, yes in fact you can be singed onto both at the same time. You just need to know what you are doing.

What google is doing is absolutely wonderful it doesn't matter if they are starting to take over the industry. They have done more for the industry than any other company. Google is constantly pushing the technology we have right now to its limit. Google is helping our society advance in the lines of technology.

Then why does it always sign me out and sh!t? I had a good 15 different passwords and now they all have to be the same to fit with the "google accounts" BS. If someone hacks my email youtube, I don't want them to hack my email too, I want to be able to retrieve my password. Same with everything else.

Because you DON'T have to link your youtube to a gmail account. My main youtube is for an email that I don't even have anymore. If I ever sign on it ask me to link my account to an email. JUST DECLINE. Its quite easy.

Google > all other companies.
And if you were technologically inclined, you would know you use a password manager to sign into anything and have a high secure password on that.

They are simply the best at most everything they've tried:
-Search Engine
-Email
-Geography
-Web-browsing
-Online Document Sharing
Oh, and they bought YouTube.
Most of the products Google owns were both free and revolutionary in their time. They make their money from ads, and if they were to start charging for their services, their services would probably be pirated or abandoned.

Also note that Google doesn't own Facebook, eBay, iTunes, MySpace, Wikipedia, or Paypal.

Heh, yeah, Google is pretty freaking huge. I would hesitate to say they've "taken over the INTERNET", but they ARE monopolizing like heck. Google *insert any word here* almost always turns out to be a slightly better or slightly worse version of something that is already in existance, but it's Google. As long as they actually advertise it, people will flock to it.

If they don't (Google Wave), people will kind of ignore it. Simply because we mostly just use the search. And the search is pretty much an empty page. But heck. They've got everything. Chrome, Mail, Search, Videos, Images, Chat (pretty sure they've got some kind of chat somewhere. Surprised if they don't), Earth. They literally have freakin' Earth. o_O

I guess they're feelin' pretty good about taking the name Earth before someone else could. Like the planet.

Chat is connected to gmail.

Google earth? They've had that for years.

"In what has been argued to be the largest political upset in human history, the internet monopoly known as "Google" has recently initiated a massive international coup which has resulted in the toppling of the world's strongest powers. What will result from this new "Googlocracy" has yet to be seen; however, analysts are now claiming tha----------------------ALL HAIL GOOGLE."

I think there have been recent complaints about what they do with all their info. The issue with content farms is becoming pretty darn serious even though they are trying to fix it. Then their is the fact that EVERY FVCKING THING YOU DO INVOLVES YOUR DATA!

I remember when they said Wave was going to wipe away all the social networking competition for Google and make them completely dominant on the web.

That worked out, eh.
