Google Sees The Mobile Light
I find myself listening more to what the guys at Google envision than what Bill Gates and crew are saying. It looks like Google is finally realizing mobile is where the future lies.
A couple of highlights from Google's Eric Schmidt yesterday:
He believes that in the future mobile devices will be where consumers access the Internet most often.
"People are going to spend all their time on it eventually," said Schmidt, referring to the mobile Internet. He expects that much of that usage will come from the combination of phones that can pinpoint user location with its localized search software.
Here's the next billion dollar revenue generator for Google. Do you think Microsoft has even thought of this yet?
