Is it me, or is Google slowly but surely taking over the world?

I had what some would call a vision, and others might call a paranoid episode... I started to think about a world completely run by google...
... google channels (Oogle), google breakfast cereal (Choogle), Sneakers (Shoogle), Women's lingerie ( Booble)... You get the picture (I told you I have a wild imagination)

The truth is... they're on the path to world domination as we speak. How else does a company, that wasn't around a few years ago, control all of the following*: IM-ing, Search engine, Satellite photo imaging, Picasa, Maps, and now... our home computers (through Google Desktop).

I don't know whether to be impressed or afraid!

I guess I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth. I've heard, they tend to spit.

*(all of which are damn cool of course)

It's funny how these things kinda sneak up on you, eh? I mean, when we were growing up, the internet was non-existent, and now people are using it to take over the world...here come the zombies

Microsoft will run them off eventually. THAT's the company to fear.

I'm a little suspicious of Starbucks, myself. They put a little somethin' in that coffee. I'm convinced.

SLADE: I know what you mean. It makes me feel so old. I pre-date the internet!

PINKS: I was craving a gmail account (no luck yet). There's something about the neverending amount of space it provides that I find appealing. And I'm so glad that you found a use for booble in a conversation... hehehe... it still makes me chuckle too!

JASON: Microsoft is soooooooo five minutes ago :)

ADRIAN: No they don't, but maybe men should start using the google search engine to locate it ;) Women around the world rejoice!

QUEL: I know what you mean. There was a coffee place in Canada that reportedly put nicotine in its coffee, to make it addictive.

Apparently there is an anti-google underground already out there. Check out www.google-watch.org
The links it has have interesting info about g-mail and its privacy policy and how g-mail stores your stuff forever... even if you delete it. Check it out

As for the Google influx, check this out: http://www.globetechnology.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20050825.gtpogueaug25/BNStory/Technology/ And Trish, if you still need a gmail account lemme know... I got a few invites left. I definitely loved your new terms, you should email that to them to see if they require some more branding!
