It's the new Google
Is this new?
Yelp --> Google Places
Twitter --> Google Plus
Wikipedia --> Google knowledge
Hotels, Airlines, you get the idea.
The search team was renamed the "knowledge" team by Larry Page in the summer of 2011 and search is still a core product of Google but it's no longer THE core product, according to Google.
