"Google does a lot of things well, maybe too well, and it's adding to its portfolio of tools on a weekly basis. At some point you have to look at the number of pies in which Google has its fingers and start to get a little frightened of this company.I came across this video the other day and it really summed up just how pervasive Google is.

"Here's just a sample of what they've done in the last few weeks:

* Announced an initiative to bring high-speed broadband to select cities and towns in the US.

* Launched a new application marketplace similar to Salesforce.com's AppExchange where Google Docs corporate users can find third-party applications that link to the Google Docs eco-system and work with Calendar, eMail and so forth.

* Launched Google Public Data Explorer, a new Labs project to view public data in interesting ways."
