I just posted a note to ThreadWatch that I feel Google becoming the next Microsoft: a company that throws it’s muscle behind numerous new initiatives which it may never follow through with, because the threat of Google going there stifles competitive innovation.
And then I read this about Google calendar, which we all heard of for more than a year but which disappointed most everybody when it came out:
Heck, it could have been the boo.com of calendars, it should have been scary enough for you to change course. Sitting by and hoping the train coming down the tracks might derail far enough ahead of course to not obliterate your BMW is not exactly the kind of advice that helps.
That was from Dead20 .
