Prediction: you’re going to hate Google. Soon!

OMG what did I just say? Why in the world would you hate Google? Google is so awesomely uber amazing. I mean, without Google, you’d still be using Yahoo for your searches; you’d still be using Hotmail for your emails; and you’d still be using MapQuest to get directions. Isn’t Google a life saver?

The fact is that Google is not a life saver. Google is a life creeper! Google is reducing your vision field and the worst thing is that you don’t even notice anything, and you’re probably asking for more.

A look at Google products and future products is scary. Mail, blogs, search, browser, health, advertising, video, books, maps, images, office tools, and so much more… Tell me one thing Google doesn’t do and chances are they’re already working on it.

What really scares me in the trust people put in Google. Their moto “don’t be evil” has been obsolete for quite a while – in case you didn’t know, Google gave away info about dissidents to the Chinese government. For a company that aims at not being evil, that’s a miss…

My prediction is that in less than 5 years we will see associations of people against Google. Remember how MicroSoft was hated by everyone in the 90’s? I predict it’s going to be much more than that. I also predict that sooner rather than later there will be a financial scandal shaking the market’s trust in Google.

You must think that I am crazy and that I have nothing to support what I am saying. You’re right. I am crazy and I have no evidence but please remember me in a few years when you blog about how much you hate Google…

  1. Hi Jim,

    Thanks for the comment. Please come back in 5 years to verify whether I was right or wrong. :-) hehe

  2. Consumers are fickle – they don´t know what they want. I think you might have a point. Maybe it will get to the stage where everyone will turn against google!! I think it´s too hard to imagine right now, but it could happen!

  3. I actually agree with you on that, not to mention Google is a very political company and you would think sooner or later they are going to over step their bounds with the info they have stored.

  5. I think its inevitable that as companies approach and then surpass the power of governments, we start hating them. Who says “I love the government?” At the end of the day, Google is a huge organisation that is there to make money- if you want to love them forever, buy some shares ;-) So, i for one agree.

  6. what you are saying here, is unfounded, even you admit, so i kind of disagree, MS was and is so hated and still most of the people use their products and there are more examples like this one. And i use a bunch of google’s programs, and features, and why is it so wrong to have them all in one place, syncronised and so one, then to have them all over the internet, and you don’t know wich is where. I say well done for google, and keep it up!

  7. Jim Mathers – the very fact that you believe he has to have “guts” to make such a comment is a give-away that you KNOW how evil they really are.
