GoogleIs Google building a supercomputer? Read Rich Skrenta's fascinating post The Secret Source Of Google's Power. Then read Jason Kottke's follow-up GooOS, the Google Operating System.

Google has 100,000 servers.

Google is a company that has built a single very large, custom computer...

Their real target is Windows. Who needs Windows when anyone can have free unlimited access to the world's fastest computer running the smartest operating system?

    Something which has interested me recently about Google is watching the privacy maniacs. They are going off their head about Gmail because it automagically reads your correspondence in order to provide better ads. Apparently this is a violation of privacy.

    I can see the whole point of view, but essentially, you lose a great deal of your privacy as soon as you go online.

    I just wonder how these people are going to react when Google expands into their next arena.

    Google will dominate the OS world. They have all the information they need! They know what we shop for, what we search for, what news we read, what we talk about with our friends, using all this info they can make the worlds best operating system. :) Cool hey, and the best thing, it's free unlike the monopolising b*stards Microsoft are.
