Google will be dominating the IT world in a few years time..
After having seen the improvements of Google for the past few years, it is almost certain that this company will surely dominate the IT world in a few years time. We must already ask ourselves if it has not already made it there.
For most people, they will still see Google as a very powerful search engine, and I am hoping to show you the full picture. With the products on the market, there is a sense of integration with all of them, and at the moment, the most important is that of the mobile platform.
Google search is the first creation of Google Inc., which remains their most popular and famous service. It receives over a billion requests on a daily basis and is the most used search engine on the net. It has around 189 different regional domains, including google.mu. How does it work? It was among the first cloud computing systems, which uses a special algorithm to generate search results which have been crawled by Google’s spiders. It is estimated that Google runs over a million servers in different data centers around the world, which makes the difference in performance.
*A spider or crawler is an automated program which indexes web sites for keywords.
AND.. it is not about searching anymore.. is it not?
Gmail is probably the most powerful mail service on the internet, with ever increasing disk space and access to pull your emails on your gmail account so that you need only to check + send mails at one place. The search facilities provided by gmail seems to be the same engine running for Google Search at the background, as such, searching for mails has never been easier with all the facilities, like auto suggest for example. Did you know that as of January 2012, Gmail had over 350 Million active users?
When it first started, it was a complete mess to me and it had no potential of winning this Social Platform award.. BUT.. With the complete integration with your android mobile device, Google+ will have its place in the near future and might even be a better platform than Facebook. I was amazed how easy it was to link my existing google account with this and how it automatically pulled data from my website for my bio. This is simply, pure art of articifial intelligence.
Apart from that, Google Calendars, Google’s Gmail and Google’s Android OS are now part of so many people’s lives. We use it on a daily basis, and some without realising that this product was produced by the Google Industry. For the services provided, I must THANK YOU, THE GOOGLE STAFF, and GOOGLE INC.
Why world domination?
Since we are in this era of technology, just imagine how powerful the services being provided by Google Inc. are, and the new potential of the integration between all the apps, devices and operating systems that will be provided. To date, there are no other service providers running at this scale, and to outpower Google, and it is not going to be an easy task. Good luck to potential new threats.
Should I buy google shares?
Listed as GOOG on the market. I think yes, but only if you can afford it. At the time of this post, it was listed at USD $594.34 for one share. It will probably will be at a higher price in the next 5 years but by how much, I cannot say.
This above list is not the only products being supplied by Google Inc. View a list of all of Google’s products on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Google_products
