Google the next Amazon.com!?!?
December 16, 2005
Google’s latest service is bringing the Internet beast closer to stomping on Amazon.com’s sacred turf.
Millions of cyber surfers use Amazon.com to search & research for books, CDs, DVDs and the such before either buying online or purchasing from one of those local bricks & mortar equivalent.
Google’s information retrieval dogma is becoming many things to many people. It’s been a library assistant for some time, but now it’s becoming more and more like a mega shopping centre or mall too.
Although this Google’s service does push users to Amazon’s stores for CD & DVD searches, what will happen as this changes people’s habits from going to Amazon first to using only Google?
Googlezon is a lot closer than we think.
