Google InfoWorld's Neil McAllister questions whether slowing product development, legal woes, and rising bureaucracy will signal trying times ahead for Google. "With Google's rapid growth have come new challenges. It faces intense competition in all of its major markets, even as it enters new ones. Its newer initiatives have often struggled to reach profitability. It must answer multiple ongoing legal challenges, to say nothing of antitrust probes in the United States and Europe. Privacy advocates accuse it of running roughshod over individual rights. As a result, it's becoming more cautious and risk-averse. But worst of all, as it grows ever larger and more cumbersome, it may be losing its appeal to the highly educated, impassioned workers that power its internal knowledge economy." Note from Thom: Are Apple's Microsoft's Google's days behind it? I don't think you can call yourself a technology giant without a '[...] is dying'-article.

Why no Note from Thom on similar articles about Microsoft or Apple jumping to their defense?

Lolwut? You realise this is a fcuking JOKE right? It actually defends Apple and Microsoft as well, mr. McSmartypants.

Maybe you should get that iPhone out of your ass, mrhasbean, before you comment.

That's some chip on your shoulder, MrHasBean. I'm sure we'll be treated to endless whining about how horribly-unjustified your banning was... if you ever get around to admitting your sockpuppetry, that is.
