The world-wide known search engine Google had a 5-year plan intended to reduce its dependence on search revenue to 65% by next year. Which, apparently, didn’t work right.
According to the local media reports, this figure appeared in the paperwork related to the Google vs. Oracle trial and showed that in fact Google was off its targets by many miles. The plan saw the company receiving over 35% of its 2013 revenue from outside its search operation. That’s what Google wanted to reach back in 2010.
It seems that Internet commerce and an initiative to bring Google services to TV were on the list of things Google was going to shift to. After the experts saw the paper, they most likely laughed and assumed that Google TV and commerce ambitions didn’t really happen. According to Herman Leung, Susquehanna Financial Group analyst, two years ago Google was a little more aggressive than it is now.
Actually, the projections for the company’s different businesses were part of a presentation to Google’s board of directors two years ago. The search giant tried to convince American District Judge William Alsup to keep the papers secret, saying they were commercially sensitive. At the same time, making the company look silly over failing to meet its goals doesn’t count as “commercially sensitive” to the judge. Jim Prosser, a spokesman for the company, claimed that the papers didn’t represent current thinking about its business operations, but he forgot to say why it was so important to have this data suppressed.
The paper also reveals how Google sees an emerging threat from cooperation between the largest social network in the world, Facebook, and Microsoft’s Bing search engine. Google was worried that Facebook-Bing users might bypass it. Meanwhile, its own YouTube business was estimated to generate $5 billion by 2013, due to a $3 billion contribution from its own TV project, which actually never happened.

|do people actually use bing? i know its inserted along with those dodgy toolbars every so often but i just change straight back, say what you like about google as a business it is a dam good search engine prob the best on web atm, hell half of the engines out there just link through google with there own html|
|Mentioned this before, but just to remind everyone. The music and film moguls know they haven't a cat in hell's chance of doing anything about piracy (And I would suggest EVERYONE in the UK changes over to Non-UK DNS servers, so the courts have no jurisdiction whatsoever over your browsing!) but they don't like TPB hosting a lot of material by unsigned bands, hence their action. Just like the FBI ripping into MegaUpload, because the 'ultra-richie's took fright over Mega's intended new media business model that would cut out the likes of the music and film companies.|
Bigger fish to fry in the UK, as the Government want to store one year's worth (so they say . . . their storage capacity at GCHQ Cheltenham can easily store SEVEN year's worth of this data) of ALL UK EMAILS, ALL UK LAND AND MOBILE PHONE CALLS and EVERYONE's ENTIRE WEB BROWSING HISTORY (They'll have one heck of a job with the web browsing and P2P if (AND WE MUST!) ALL USE NON-UK DNS SERVERS FROM NOW ON.
THEY SAY they won't be looking at content, don't believe a word of it. Once they have access, all hell break's loose on everyone's privacy. The Police will use it more routinely than phoning or writing to mother, and all opposition MPs will be at risk of being busted or blackmailed over anything.
WE NEED PEOPLE OUT ON THE STREETS,DEMONSTRATING PEACEFULLY BUT BLOCKING OFF ACCESS TO GCHQ at Cheltenham, No 10 AND Parliament if need be.
It's time for EVERYONE AS IN EVERYONE, ALL OF US IN OUR MILLIONS TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED and defeat the BIGGEST THREAT to Civil Liberty, Human Rights, Right to Privacy and Right to a Private Life in the free world, without ALL electronic communication being monitored all of the time.
ONLY IRAN AND CHINA have anything similar in place. They won't catch a single terrorist, paedophile/paedophile group or anyone out for serious crime or harm to others, as they'll ALL go underground on changed DNS servers, anonymous proxies, VPN AND they'll totally encrypt all their communications. BUT WE WILL ALL HAVE LOST OUR ENTIRE PRIVACY ENTIRELY FOR NOTHING.
STOP THIS NOW!

|In the last few years, Google has just plain failed at almost everything...period. Every "Update" and "Uber-Awesome-Algorithm" has sequentially crippled them and alienated their users both average searchers and marketers. Well done you bunch of intelligent morons.||
