This week Google suffered an embarrassing situation over their quarterly figures, which showed that advertising revenue was falling. Apparently the figures were published early my mistake, but nonetheless it was a huge problem for them.
Their search results are out of line with the other SE's, although users are not declining.
People still "Google" because they are the market leaders. But before Google Yahoo was the major SE, and MSN, ASK and others all had their time.

Has Google peaked? Are they trying to be too clever? Are they trying to be be too many different things?

My personal view is that in 5 years time we will be looking at something very different to what we have today. What are your views on this?
