I agree brett, i think their main problem was trying to be everything they aren't. I'm just kinda guessing its because of schmidt, he seemed to have an axe to grind with everyone, apple, microsoft....even the normal net user, he was riding a train full of cash and just started burning it in an war that isn't win-able.
just be a search engine goog, you are the worlds biggest advertising platform, you aren't the worlds OS, you aren't the worlds data source.... you aren't the worlds solution to every single problem. Heads up, bing/yahoo are eatting at the only thing that makes you money....search, keep focusing on all that other stuff and you'll have the rug pulled right out from under you!
