I bet the company updated it using Buzz through their new 1Gb/s internet from Google. Maybe they whole-sale bought their power from Google too....You've got to wonder what Google is up to now with all these buy-outs....

Google becomes how it is today is because a lot of users are using its serives. If you guy dont want Google to monopolize then stop using Google.

Not much different from other mainstream acquisition sprees. Over the past 40 years Bershire Hathaway acquired over 80 companies. You'd be surprised at some of the companies Berkshire owns. Proctor and Gamble did pretty good too.

I can't wait to see the Google contextual ads when people are editing images. There's going to be some fun to have there... Will you see weight loss ads when you're trying to airbrush a fat girl out of a picture?

The monopolize part implies that once they purchase every single competition, they'll charge us eaxh fifty billion trilion dollars/ pounds to send an email, or something.
Basically, once they have the market to themselves, people are worried they'll abuse it; and rightly so. Remember Microso- I mean, notice Microsoft?

No, but you will see ads for 4chan when you try to shoop Chris Hansen into the lower left corner.

Neither does Microsoft....

Google has acquired yet another company....

That part of the title sums it up well. What's their roadmap these days, buy at least 25 companies per fiscal year now? Google is as it seems, on pace to be the next Microsoft of the 2010's. A little more time, more investments, numerous more acquisitions, and we will soon see anti-competitive lawsuits popping up.
