The old GOOG investment / development philosophy was, rather than invest $1M in one project, they would invest $100k into each of 10 projects --- and hope one of them was a home run... I though that was smart.
But I guess they ended up with a bunch of stuff that doesn't really work, definitely is NOT part of a single unified platform --- kind of a "jack of all trades, master of none" result, (except AdWords/AdSense).
Now they are going after content, not apps or services.
