Google A recent Google acquisition of DoubleClick for a whopping USD 3.1 billion has turned many heads. The recent past certainly does not fit into Google's traditional non-aggressive attitude towards acquisitions for monopoly in the market.

Beside Google's acquisitions, this article will also explore some changes in Google's philosophy and potential threats to web community.

It's your loss...Google Earth, Picasa and SketchUp are *amazing* applications.

Sure Picasa is nice, but it basically locks you into using the Picasa photo hosting service. Meanwhile I may not have a snazzy app, but I'm much happier with my free, infinite storage on Yahoo Photos, thank you very much.
