More on google tonight..

Slashdot reports on a possible plan buy google to develop a cheaper alternative to the current internet in order to provide high bandwith applications more cheaply. Yup, sounds about right to me. What would be interesting is how the implement the last mile delivery .. could it be Wifi? I hope so.

On another note Cringely is on record as pinning the google development as peaked at the moment, and is calling the rapidfire google developments like the dark fibre buyout just an expensive smoke and mirrors game so that google can shape the world around them a little. For example, release a chat client based on open standards ... boom everyone else runs to do the same. Interestingly he calls Apple the biggest threat to the current way. Ok ,ok .. that particular theory is a stretch, but have a look.
