  • Google's Wide Moat Widens Every Second [View article]
    Thanks for mentioning my article. I don't necessarily disagree that Google is a major player and that their personalized style of search is attractive to you and others. But that same notion, 'personalization' is what scares people away (NSA, Prism) into maybe trying DuckDuckGo or other alternatives.

  • Hey Google, A Search War Is About To Explode [View article]
    Great points. I had initially included Amazon in my list but felt it was too e-commercy for the gist of my social search hypothesis.

    AC buyout rumors?
    I dont think its a game changer, if Goog buys AC.

    Whats app took the crown, and bouyed by their CEO's promise not to put ads on it, means theres no way or reason to think that Whats app will feel heat from a competitor such as Google

  • AudioCodes: Google, WhatsUpp? [View article]
    How can you compare Audio Codes to Whats App and Viber- the latter two are brand names and used by everyone, while the former is simply great technology, but offers no immediate customer base, a la the hundreds of millions of whats app users.

    Yep. And similar logic to there being 400 million Google+ users...bc it comes automatically with email. I think if Apple were to delve into search, which they will, Google will lose.

    But in terms of profit, Search is still 86% of it, and the needle hasnt moved too much

    Fair points across the board.

    I disagree about Motorola - I think Google Glass is a flop and the Nexus phones havent captured enough market share yet

    I wouldn't speculate that much. The CEO irks me, in a shady way.

    You have a point there, but at least DDG claims it won't be shared...for now

    Even after the NSA scandal? Doesn't seem likely

    I agree completely. Just saying that Bing is somewhat of a thorn in Google's side.

    But if you're swimming in money, and the public doesn't trust you because of NSA, then perhaps...?

    But they arent collecting it- the NSA can't come to DDG and say "start collecting this data"

    Yes but from the PR perspective that doesn't work. Now they are making encrypted the DEFAULT setting, whereas before it was not.
