Well now that Google's released an Instant Messaging program, they've
got pretty much
a fucking smorgasboard of shit you can use. And you probably do because
GOOGLE IS TEH GOOD
right? I doubt it. And they're really positioning themselves as the new
Microsoft. BUT WAIT
DECOY, MICROSOFT IS TEH BAD!?!?!!11oneone. Don't listen to the bullshit
that slashdot or various
linux trolls feed you. Microsoft does have some good software along
with the bad. And the only
two programs I recommend you never use made by microsoft are Internet
Explorer and Outlook. But
I digress, because this is about google and not microsoft.
Now Google's first huge product was gmail. Google mail was highly
sought after when it first
came out since it was invite only, in fact I remember one loser from
IRC going nuts because
he couldn't get a invite. I got mine fairly early through Radiopillows,
and I've been using it
ever since. I have no real qualms with google's e-mail, besides the
fact I could never blow through
two gigabytes plus of space, and the fact for a long time they ignored
any webbrowser that wasn't
IE or Firefox.
Next up was the google toolbar, which blocked popups in IE at first,
and added a useful little
box to quickly let you search (SHOCK OF SHOCKS) google! Amazing! I
think what blew my mind about
this was they released it for Firefox, when you know, there was a
FUCKING GOOGLE BOX ALREADY IN
THERE. SO NOW I HAVE TWO CHOICES IF I EVER GET LOST!!!
Now came the desktop search tool, because you know, Windows built in
search tool, or just plain
knowing where your fucking files were wasn't good enough, BECAUSE IT
NEEDED TO BE MADE BY GOOGLE.
I'm starting to think google is greek or something for lazy fucker.
Seriously at what point do you
say to yourself, "Man I'd sure like a third party application which may
or may not send my data to a server
to rifle through my personal e-mails!" because if you do I want you to
Next, Google followed a page out of Microsoft's book and bought a
pre-existing software and branded it.
Whereas MS bought out a useful program, Google bought out Picasa, an
image sorting program. Once again
telling you you can't handle your own computer, so let the gods at
google take care of it for you.
And lars, you can burn in hell. God damn Swede probably has some freaky
furry porn he needs to sort or
something. "Because e-mail's not made for pictures". Gee someone's
never heard of an attachment have they?
Then on the fourth day, Googlor made Google Earth. A system resource
hogging 3D map. Neat. I can see outdated
satellite photos! :D HOORJ
and to quote from Google's site:
"Apple Macintosh computers are not supported at this time (but we are
working on it)."
so basically unless you're running XP and a small nasa supercomputer,
fuck off and die as far as
google is concerned :)
Oh wow! Finally! A Messaging program! AND WITH MY FAVORITE BRAND!! :D
seriously, google talk is built upon the Jabber protocol, which no one
in their right
mind uses, and I can't see anyone ever giving a shit, since you can USE
the network on
other OS's than Windows XP, but you can't use any of the features of
it. Completely negating
any kind of bonus there'd be to use this shit. But at least it's
spyware free for now. Not like
so what's next for google? A lot of people have thought that Google
would release an operating
system. Perhaps call it...oh I don't know...GoogleOS? HOAHAOHA I AM
BRILLIANT. But honestly, if they did it'd be the dumbest thing ever. I
it'd have to be BSD/Linux based, and instead of building one from
scratch, I can
see them buying out perhaps Mandriva (Mandrake) or someone else, and
just branding it.
But running GoogleOS would be pointless, because the only programs
you'd get to use
would be Google's, and really, what's the point of that shit when
there's programs out there,
either free or not, that absolutely crush google's offerings?
