Google corner

This week Google decided they take over (what's left of) the world:

First - they'll take your voice mail

Then they'll take your social graph

They will update your Android mobile OS

Desktop Widgets - Behind you!!

Google takes over the navigation business. TomTom and Garmin stocks plummet by 20-40%.
This proves the saying: "You're only safe untill google does it."

'Till next week
Roy.
