  1. When are we going to see a Yahoo-type portal on Google.com homepage? With so many properties with Google, I guess they will have to eventually do it someday.

  2. Seriously, even their increase in sales doesn’t justify their current marketcap. Let’s cool the bubble hype down.

  3. What was the outcome of the Viacom lawsuit? I guess I could do a search, but it seems like that is the only bad thing in the list above. I’m just really happy that the amount of storage for Gmail was increased.

    nothing has been resolved on the Viacom lawsuit front just yet. I think it is going to be a major story next year, and clearly Viacom is putting its own plans in place to compete.

    I agree with you both to an extent. If you go by the definition of a ‘portal’, yes iGoogle is a portal. But I see it as Google’s equivalent of MyYahoo – a personalized desktop. I may have not articulated properly, but I was just referring to the Google homepage getting cluttered with more of their property in the future.

  6. I’m waiting for Joptspot in Google APPs.
    And accounting application google apps
    More work on Blogger to take on wordpress.

    Gmail with TO do list and Calender integartion just like Outlook 🙂

    Yes more feataures will be coming and blogosphere will be going nuts and Share price will touch 1000 USD
    I wish i had few 🙂

  7. I think the Doubleclick and to some extent Grandcentral were their key moves of the year. I think the next year will be about execution for them, and lets see how well they do there.

  8. who will win out Google or Exchange2007? Im betting the companies that offer hosted exchange and give good customer service will do well.

  9. You forgot Google’s acquisition of GreenBorder – the real motivation for that was the need to make the google browser (under development) bullet proof secure. 2k8 will see the release of goog browser with built in google gears, greenborder and it will not be based on mozilla.

    Google’s vision has always been to keep things simple, but at the same time provide the best and most relevant information to users. Their UI on their home page is simple and straightforward. I’m pretty sure that how its always gonna be. So i dont think you’re gonna get cluttered portal’s like on Yahoo.com.
