[Im not 100% sure about this] but if i remember google has spent more money on Google earth / map then they earned from it.

They bought youtube.. Not really their success.

Any serious 3d Modeler (such as i) knows that Sketch up is practically useless. Nothing more then a toy. Not very practical.

Again Google bought android..

ADsense / Ad word ... Ok yea.. But its just part of the search engine in my opinion..

The success of Google docs is questionable since most people still use a regular word processor.
Google Inc. purchased the initial developer of the software, Android Inc., in 2005.

Cause Android was huge in 2005, all that stuff they did beforehand

Seriously, Sketchup is good if you are a normal user. Everyone isn't an enthusiast like us.

So... much... must... resist... flaming... ARGHHHH!!! FAILLLL!!!!!

Disagree on all aspects of your opinion.

Chrome: Ehh... no bugs here, not even minor little glitches. I've been using Chrome since it first became available and haven't looked back at Firefox. Neither have my friends other than 1 single dude that is just reluctant on trying something new because it "confuses" him. Oh, and I've even been using the Canary builds which are considered to be "more prone" to crashes.

Google Earth: I don't see how that's even relevant unless you're referring to the $400 Pro version? I've never used Pro nor know anyone that has used the Pro version, but do agree that it is quite a ridiculous price for features that don't seem very useful.

Youtube was NOT as big before Google took over. Google has thrown in HD, 3D, and now even movie rentals. Youtube was also not one of the most wanted things in a TV or DVD player before Google took over.

Sketchup is neat for the NON professional artist. I don't know about you, but the typical college student can't fork out ~$500 for a 3D modeling suite. Sketchup works fine for a starting student and it's free.

Android... wow. Really? They bought it in 2005, and the first phone launched in October 2008. You're saying Google didn't do any of the work?

At my job we all use (maybe 50 or so people) Docs to collaborate on work. We have a neatly drawn out inventory of where we keep things and if anyone moves stuff somewhere else they modify the Doc page to reflect that. Dispatchers key in any appointments we (techs) get for the day/week and we grey them out and leave notes on them once we're done with them.

Ad Sense is hardly a part of the search engine... do you even know what it is? Ad Sense lets you put Google ads on your website, and you get paid for that. How is that at all part of the search engine? Ad Words yes; it's part of the search engine, but it is the feature that allows you to get your website up into Google's top searches. It's not just the "Google.com" search engine itself, it's a service ALLOWING you to throw yourself into Google search results.

If we use Docs for such practical organization, I can't imagine all the more productive things people use it for. Sure, if you ALREADY spent ~$200 or so (thousands for large companies) on Office, of course you're not going to just walk away from it embarrassingly to use the free alternative that does the same thing (but better due to the team collaboration features it offers). Another thing is Docs isn't advertised very well. Thousands/millions of GMail users don't even know that it exists or what it does. If they did, I'm sure they'd use it in place of Office.

Been using it for about a week. Its fantastic, except the music manager needs a bit of work because it gets stuck uploading every once in a while. Streaming works good, although with only one bar it takes a few seconds to start the stream.

I no longer have to have a duplicate library on my laptop!

There is too much fail in your post..

Chrome is by far the most lightweight and fastest browser out of the 3 you've mentioned. I'd hardly call it a fail based on marketshare. Need I remind you Chrome came out years after Firefox and IE did? What are these glitches you speak of? When I upgraded to Chrome from Firefox, I vowed never to go back. Firefox would crash on me all the time. The only time Chrome has crashed was when a plugin like Flash crashed. Even then, all you have to do is reload the page and not the ENTIRE browser. Separate threads FTW.

Google Maps is way better than any other mapping service out there. Name me one worthy competitor that hasn't tried to copy Google. Plus the fact that it integrates with the search engine to bring reviews from all over the internet makes it a one stop shop for information about any physical location. Often imitated, never beaten.

SketchUp was NEVER meant for a "serious 3D modeler". What gave you that twisted idea? The fact is, it's meant to get your average Joe interested in 3D modeling. It's easy enough to use that anyone can pick it up and learn how to make some basic 3D models within minutes, FOR FREE. Your point is moot here.

Google bought Android. So what? Android was complete garbage before Google bought it. You're saying that the original developers would've made it this big without Google's backing? Yea, keep dreaming.

Adwords brought in $28 billion in revenue for Google. Not a fail at all. Adwords controls over 66% of the PPC advertising market.

The source link is actually an announcement about "Google Offers" which looks to be some kind of LivingSocial clone.

More about Google Offers.

What do you mean "report" you? Just because you burned songs off your CDs to your library or got a mixtape from a friend, why would there be anything wrong with that? They don't have to come from iTunes or Amazon store to be legal.

A Year after the release of FF nearly 23% of user were using..

Google chrome has been released back in 2008. Its only just reached about 25%..

Ohh and back when FF first came out it was the fastest lightest....

Im not talking about it throught the users POV. I LOVE google maps and earth.. That doesn't mean its turning them in a big profit..

Blender is free and is MUCH MUCH better..

What good is software if you are limited severely by it. And if you do ever want to switch you pretty much have to relearn everything..

its useless. Its not even good to teach people how to make models..

Yea exactly the probably would have..

They were already making phone software..

One of the owners of Android.inc was t-mobiles Vice president.. (The other guys were somewhat important too) And after the aquation the same people that were already producing the platform continued to work on it.

Never called it a fail. I said its just part of the search engine..

It tracks your search saves them and ads you on things you have been looking for later..

This is simply the way a search engine makes money. Its just part of the search engine.. (In my opinion)
