So you use Google every day, you use the word google as a verb. And so it goes.
I was in fact ‘Googling’ recently, and was interested to learn, what is Google’s mission? It seems they are continuing to do everything in the digital space that I can think of, and much more I haven’t even thought about, and likely other areas they are reaching into evey day.
Outside of the virtual – there is also the truly transformational impact the company is having on so many other aspects, such as mapping, google goggles, the self-driven car and others.
So going back to their mission.

The reason why I say Goolge is Delivering, is because the fight for first to market now – is the CLOUD… and while I have been an Apple fan, user, adopter and on the inside of the Apple industry in the late 80s-early 90’s – I am slowly becoming a Google believer when it comes to the Cloud.
Their apps, their usability, their social, their mobility, their reach, their impact, their growth, do I need to say more? They are making it happen and the use of the tools and products continues to grow across the globe.
I am not pleased with Apple’s approach to the cloud. Mobile Me, iDisk, iCloud, AirDrop, ShareFiles within a computer, Share files locally, DropBox this, public folder here or there. I am so frustrated with the way they have handled the usability factor and to see Google actually making way – is remarkable.
I’ll leave you with this – if you haven’t jumped into Google Drive – check it out.
Still have all the Apple hardware and use many Apple products – but am a bit sour on their Cloud thinking at the moment.
