Where is Yahoo's answer to google apps, google maps and street view, the Android OS, Youtube, the superior google news, Pisca, the Chrome OS and browser, and their vastly better email system?

Yahoo is known for floundering. Search is only half their business. The other half is floundering in a market where they just can't seem to compete any more.

I guess we should just ignore Google Earth, Google News, Youtube, Gmail, and every other feature that Google has made. Lady, I would stop worrying about how competitor's are doing, and start worrying about yourself. Last time I checked, Yahoo was losing money, fast.

Does Google wake up in the middle of the night requiring the use of a toilet? Does Google think it has a Going problem? If so Google might actually have a growing problem.

She is right, Google has to grow, or better acquire.

After all putting all eggs in a basket, may not be appealing, some strategist from opponent side might think of breaking the eggs, or shifting the basket itself, or might even try to kill the hen, who gave the eggs, to find something inside it, who knows.

Note:
Wise folks make beautiful things that are true and necessary as well, something like search.
Then wise folks go ahead and enjoy it, might maintain it as well.
And then wise folks become foolish and themselves destroy it.

I just can't believe it. I have noticed people calling Google SKYNET, and i understand that sort of paranoia cause we went through a lot of SKYNET's (microsoft, etc). But if one company in this world convinced me that it cares for the users it has, and especially for its employers, it's GOOGLE.

maybe not a perfect webmail app, but there's nothing better than GMAIL.
maybe not the perfect mobile OS, but far better availability for production through open source with Android.
google has so many maybe's which in the end will be our first choice solutions, it's the only company in the world that supports competitors (firefox is based on google soil), and they like goats (smart ass people, free goat cheese, i knew they were up to something).

they were the first who got together with nasa and did google maps, why didnt yahoo think of that?

nevermind, i am just pissing my self off.

Just FYI, Googles revenue is about 97% based on advertising (which they themselves classify in the same branch as search. Sure they do a hell of alot more than that but revenue wise, the money is coming from advertising.
Now what i don't is where she is getting her information that google is apparently not interesting, while I can't remember the last time I even saw the word yahoo! Sure their revenue might not be so highly based on search, but thats because no one uses their search engine!

I agree with the post above, Eric Schmidt is probably the most honest and ethical CEO I've ever heard about.

This woman is vapid. Google is overreaching itself, and it's getting way too big for its own britches. It won't be too many years before the feds start taking notice, if they haven't already.

PlutoDelicBut if one company in this world convinced me that it cares for the users it has, it's GOOGLE.


Keep on drinking that Flavor Aid son, I'm sure Google appreciates your blind enthusiasm. Do you really think Google gives a shit about you? Unless you've got liquid $ floating through your veins, I doubt it.

I laugh at everything she said.
"Google has to grow a company the size of Yahoo every year to be interesting."

Google is "bigger" than Yahoo! at present
Google is more interesting than Yahoo! at present

However, Yahoo! is not trying (or not trying so good) to take over the world.
