And by the way, they will eventually end up with more data too, they are the Internet now, aren't they ;-)
Think if it, the only way to unsettle Microsoft is to shift more applications online, already being done, and the largest obstacle in this model is infrastructure and security, bingo.
The internet is GoogleNet?
No, its actually the Gorg. :)
Do a search for "Google Acquisitions" and review the Wiki entry. That gives you a good overview of what Google is up to. Its an interesting timeline.
Based on what I'm seeing, and I do keep my nose to the ground on acquisition related issues, anybody with a technology that is new and innovative, has a solid userbase, and is gaining momentum, will be purchased by one of the big three.
The race is on to see how many tech companies each of them can purchase to keep the others from doing the same. Google buys this. Yahoo! responds by buying that. And then MSN comes along and buys the last big player in the space. All gone! On to the next round of acquisitions.
