Rumours are also abuzz about Google OS. According to rumours it has started testing a variation of the open-source OS Ubntu and projecting it as Goobuntu, currently rumoured to be tested on Dell PCs.
There are also rumours of Google Browser, since it has registered a domain name for it (gbrowser.com).
Google's Online Word Processor is supposedly under development(It acquired Writely,which was developing this word-processor).
Google is also heading towards home entertainment, so even your TVs could now be googled..
There are many more that may be in the offing..check out http://labs.google.com for periodic updates. There are also a group of google critics who say that it may run out of steam after some years, due to its random diversification (altavista tried similar thing in the late 90s and it failed in it).But then, it WILL prove them wrong..
As you must have known till now, I would luvvv to be part of such a company.so waiting for the right opportunity...(any google employers listening??)
