[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CdJTfGiRCI] So here is a follow-up to yesterday's post.
Yesterday I commented on the newly created GooglePlay, a Google version of iCloud that puts media including apps and music on all of your devices.
Now I want to rephrase what I have previously said. If you watched the video at the beginning of this post you probably got a good laugh. Now I have watched this video about 90 times and have found it humorous each time. But as I was thinking about my Enough is Enough post I realized that this amazing kid is saying something that I have been feeling for a long time.
At one point in the video the kid says "I am sick of[and] tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw Em!"
As this little boy shouted screw them I realized that this is the story of Google and Apple, or close to it. As all of you might know by now...I am a little bit partial to Apple. But like I have said, Google does around 7 things that I love and can't live without. But everyday the media and internet news "sphere" puts out a story of how "Google has this" and "Google has that."
Well just like in Miracle, I am sick and tired of hearing about Google. I don't understand how people can possibly believe that a company with over 150 products or really features can deliver a high quality of service.
So if someone from Google is reading this, I would like to say, I absolutely love parts of your company, I think you do a great job with certain products. But please, please, stop creating new things. To me, it makes you look weak. It makes you seem as though you need to keep up, as though you are still in second. Focus on what your good at, and leave the rest to someone else.
So there you go...
Google, I am attached by the hip to parts of your corporation, i.e. Gmail, Translate...but I'm not impressed by your current style of business.
