  • Google Dethroned? [View article]
    Google is far from being dethroned!

    And to argue the one trick pony... just take a look at their options page - .

    They have many options which they can monitize. Maps, Blogger (even though Wordpress is the leader), Google Reader (which recently acquired Feedburner), and lets not forget they own Youtube which has huge room to grow in terms of monetization.

    And Chris B... Google has already started working on similar AI search results that you are talking about. Google Search already answers your questions when you type them in.

    Twitter is growing at a tremendous rate... but aa some people pointed out, they still don't have a business model and a limited room to expand on unlike Google.

    Facebook... is a fad.. as an avid user of facebook since it came out, I've almost stopped using it altogether. I may use it from time to time to check my messages, say Happy Birthday to someone, but that's about it. My time on facebook went from hours a day to maybe a minute a day. And once again... where is Facebooks room to expand? Sell information to Government? (which they probably already do!)

    I will try to expand on this topic on the Young & Invested blog... with real stats.. and even the downside of Googles massive size

    Never trust a chief economist from a bank who has suffered the worst losses of all Canadian banks!
