Google Reaching Crtical Mass Tipping Point

Google, for me, just reached a critcal mass tipping point. A tipping point – say what? I’m now using enough of Google’s kung-fu on a daily basis that I’m more likely to look to Google to fill a need than to say Microsoft or Yahoo! I want to consolidate a lot of what I do on-line and I want to consolidate with somebody I trust or more importantly somebody with a lot to loose if they don’t take security and backup seriously.

Take a look at this list Google kung-fu that I currently use. I tried to order the list by frequency of use – I use the kung-fu near the top of the list the most.

  • google.com Personalized Home Page (replaced Yahoo! Home page)
  • calendar.google.com (recently, completely replaced Outlook)
  • reader.google.com (recently, replaced Bloglines – long-time Bloglines user)
  • desktop.google.com (recent addition, replaced Yahoo! widgets)
  • mail.google.com (long-time user, personal use)
  • checkout.google.com (established, use rarely)
  • docs.google.com (long-time Writely user)

I only recently started using a lot of this kung-fu - that’s part of what I find interesting. In recent months Google has really been working on their kung-fu and it’s showing.
