So, what does everyone think about this one? I'm loving it because I think Google is a great company with very creative people. With Sun's expertise they are going to do some really cool stuff I think. Time will tell.

If Google is going to take over the world, then sign me up. Google employees get more perks than foreign diplomats.

Google took a big step toward challenging Microsoft's dominance in computer word-processing and spreadsheets with the announcement Tuesday that it would distribute Java technology from Sun Microsystems.

The move will let Google create or offer programs that could take on Microsoft's industry-leading Office suite.

Under the deal, Google will distribute Java along with the search company's toolbar application, the two companies said.

The deal, whose terms were not disclosed, would make it easier for PC users to run applications based on the Java programming language. That includes the free productivity suite OpenOffice, a challenger to Office, a major cash cow for Microsoft.

"Working with Google will make our technologies more available more broadly, increase options for users, lower barriers and expand participation worldwide," said Scott McNealy, Sun's chief executive officer.

Eric Schmidt, Google's chief executive, said the deal opens up the possibility of additional collaboration between the companies.

Under the deal, Sun's Java Runtime Engine will be offered as an option to users who download the toolbar application that allows users to quickly run searches and find other information from Google.

The toolbar currently works only on computers running Microsoft Internet Explorer and the Firefox browser.

Yea, I was referring to Google and Sun teaming up. Although, I think the free WiFi is great. Too bad I live 3000 miles away. Maybe they can use some extended range access points. haha.

The boys and girls at google are creative I will give you that, I have been and in many ways am a fan of google. But They are weilding a lot of power now. They now have a lot of info, personal info. As they expand in ways I am starting to notice a pattern. There will be other Free WiFI citys in the near future. Google will eventualy go head to head with major telco's and ISP's

Picture a Microsoft + AOL TIme Warner + AT&T

This will be Google. Any company in history wich wields Masive amounts of power abuses it.

Examples include

Ma Bell before the break up
Standard Oil
Time Warner
AOL
Microsoft


I am not saying google is evil persay. I am saying just be mindful of the patern which has happened time and again.

The problem with that comparison is that those companies rely on money gained directly from the public, and so don't mind screwing other companies over. Since google makes its money through ads, it has a symbiotic relationship with both companies and the public. Google will continue to provide free services, hoping to attract more users, while still maintaining fair business practices in order to keep getting money from other companies. IMHO, it's a win-win situation.

You would think. Remember Google is now a public company. They have stock holders to answer to. These stock holders do not like thier only source of revenue being ads. Google has been trying lately to find other streams of revenue due to investor pressure.

Thier getting into VOIP puts them right in the telco market. Once the stock was sold, many things changed.

No, not the stockholders themselves. It's the entire system that is inherently wrong. Capitalism begets greed. Hell, the entire idea is based on a deadly sin. Too bad we really don't have a better alternative.

I, for one, find it ironic that the people who are in support of anarchy, also hate free enterprise. If the government stepped in and took over everything, people would bitch about not having freedom. If the government leaves companies alone, the same people bitch about the companies having too much power. WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE WANT!?!?!?
