What doesn't Google do these days? And of those things it does not do, what does it not have plans to do in the near future?
They acquired Writely, which I love wholeheartedly (see Michael Arrington's post on TechCrunch). They acquired MeasureMap not too terribly long ago (and still have not invited me to join, even though it's been a few months, I think - GRRR to them!). According to TechCrunch, they are working on building a Calendar and something called Google Drive (which will let you store ALL of your data online so you can access it anywhere). And of course there are the new-ish tools like Google Base, Google Page Creator (which, of course, was only up for a few hours before Google took it down and now we are all once again waiting for the email invite), Google Desktop (which I have no interest in using), and all the other things I'm surely missing.
To fear them or love them? I use Blogger (obviously), I have a GMail account (which is my primary email account), I "Google" practically everything when searching for stuff on the web, I use Writely, I want to use MeasureMap, I've signed up to be notified about Google Page Creator, and I'm interested in the Calendar, although not positive I would use it. Let's hope they continue to "do no evil" because it looks like they hold a lot of control over me and my online habits. :)
