    How odd.
    So this guy's made up an interesting sci-fi story about what google might be planning and what might happen in the future, but he offers no supporting evidence whatsoever. It actually seems vaguely terminator-ish, except no guns.
    It's a reasonable short story, but why the audiovisuals? Do they just have bandwidth to burn?

    Because it's meant to be set in 2014 and it would look pretty lame as a webpage in 10 years time if it was just text? :rolleyes:

    I thought that was rather cool to be honest.

    This sparks the never-ending debate: I carry a calculator in my briefcase as powerful as a computer that, 40 years ago, took up an entire room. Technology has made absolutely HUGE advances in the last 40 years. Think back to this time last year: the Xeon processors were the most powerful, and only used in servers. If you had tons of money to spend on hardware, you had an Athlon XP 3200+ and an amazing motherboard to go with it. You had a max of PC3200 RAM, and the absolute best video card on the market was a toss-up between the 9800XT and the 5900 Ultra. Now, we're up to the FX-55 64-bit processor, and have even faster quad-opteron systems. We're working on dual core processors, and making dual-processor systems standard for performance systems. Then we have video cards: if you look through the Bit reviews alone, you'll see a new video card, or a new release or an older card, or an improvement on SOMETHING at least once every two weeks. PCI-E has come out. SATA2, DDR2, tons of new VIA and nVidia chipsets have come out. We are up to speeds of PC5400 in DDR2, hard drive speeds of upward of 15,000RPM, huge amounts of space, denser, quieter, more power effiecient. Dual layer DVD, Blu-Ray, 16x DVD-RW speeds. Think about it: was DVD-RW even common a year ago? Now we're up to being able to burn Dual-Layer, 16x speed, and we're working on perfecting Blu-Ray. I work for Honeywell, and even though our interfaces have changed to computer's using Cannon technology, to touch screens, our vent controllers are still the same mechanics as they 20 years ago. So, if we've had this much technological advance in half a year, where are we in another 10 years....

    Just something to think about :worried:

    Do we all get $1 if you're wrong? c'mon shouldn't you just be glad to be alive?

    As for google, it's going to rise to dominate the internet... then internet 2 will be public...
    At that point google will continue to grow until it turns into a monster like microsoft, or it will crash (like microsoft... just wait)

    Yea.. lol GoogeZon, erk, thats evil, although it will make the company ultra powerful, tbh its just a made race to be at the top of the ladder, and for one company to own the net.

    Was quite good actually. I hope that google doesn't become too commercial. They're starting to annoy me.
