There is nothing that prevents other companies to provide the same service at the same or higher quality.
When Google shuts down their implimentation, there are lots of users that will be looking for an alternative..

Google is using its search monopoly to harm competing businesses and technologies by:
- first embracing the technology
- then extending (making better? making incompatible?)
- then extinguish (close the service).
That is how microsoft rolls and that is how google rolls. If you buy into their pr s*it then you are quite naive.
