Well they do have a google netbook coming out.

I can see something like this happening Google, Walmart, McDonalds and Verizon join to make one massive company. They're def going to be taking over the world.

I hope you realise that google's entire revenue stream is from ad's.
Which means that any game google was to create would contain adverts and probably some software which collects anonymous data, they have it in everything they do.
Its a shame, but its their business plan.
Google are pretty much going to fingers in many pies,(no pun intended), they have expanded to smartphones, netbooks (soon), they will keep striving forward.
I dont know if its a good thing for gaming but we will see.

I think it is good what google are doing but they always say they are taking on ms. This is where Google will fail. No one will push MS out of the pc market as they have been in the game for too long.

MS are at this moment not a force in the mobile market although windows phone 7 could change this as the software is amazing.

Gmail has round 30m users windows live has 300m users.

Gdocs will never get near office.

the only thing they have got is google search which is bigger than big but they way things are going at the moment bing can close the gap over the next few years with apple looking to pick bing as it default search windows phone using bing xbox using bing and bing being the default search of IE and firefox looking at moving away from google.

Google need to be looking at what apple are doing and trying to take them on as they are more a match to google than ms.

I agree. Im not sure how google will beat MS in PC's, they could take MAC first if anyone.
I think google will win the mobile market, flooding the market with multiple models and manufacturers.
I was thinking about a MS phone, I tried a demo model out its pretty good.
But its the 1st iteration, many bugs will have to be found.
Im gonna stick with android for the time being.

Agreed. Chrome is definitely the best browser out there, and it's an interesting move to see Google expanding it into a more multi-purpose platform.

D4RkNIKON2923d ago

I want to see some more gaming on my android phone

Convas2923d ago (Edited 2923d ago )

I gotta disagree about Chrome being the best browser. Personally, I feel that Firefox is the best. But that's just me.

iamgoatman2923d ago

Pfft, all the cool kids know Opera is where it's at.

Quite a few of Chromes features originated on Opera as well, like the speed dial or whatever google now calls it.

Darth Stewie2923d ago

Please be Chrome as PS3 web browser or Google TV coming to PS3.

Why don't sll businesses just become game companies /s

Seriously I am fed up with large corporations entering certain markets just because they have the money to do so.
