Honestly, does anyone have any clue as to what google is doing, or what its priorities are in terms of products and services?
There, I got to the point. So now allow me to preface…I know that Google is working on a ton of things at once and that none of them are easy. It’s not easy to make something like Google docs. So I know it takes time, and that there are going to be lags that make it seem like Google is disjointed when in fact each product team is working diligently on their little areas or features or whatever. But I still can’t figure out why they have their heads so far up their butts.
Also, please note that I don’t think of myself as either a Google hater or a fanboy. Google has some good stuff, and they are pretty darn creative. But they also have their flaws. My issue, here and now, is that they clearly have resources of amount X, and that they have shown at least a few times when they have not spread that amount effectively. I’ll give examples of both great and terrible allocation of resources.
