What value does ID hold? Hmmm...if Google knew your exact name, home and e-mail address and know what sites you visit, what searches you type in, don't you think advertisers would pay way more than if they knew you by 255.255.255.78 ? Then there are transactions, wallet payments through Android etc etc.
Walkman seem to have explained just one objective of this project - improving their returns from their well known traditional business. :)
But irrespective of whatever Google does, Baidu will rule china and Yandex will probably rule Russia (isn't USSR dead?). Google will never be allowed to gain the upper hand in those markets and you know why.
