The December issue of Wired, takes a look at Google's many ventures (these days it's a challenge to keep up but we try) and reports on just who might be "scared" of them in the article and chart titled: Who's Afraid of Google? Everyone. From SBC to eBay to Microsoft to Corel, they're all listed.
From the article:
Omid Kordestani, the company's global sales guru, said at a recent conference, "We're trying to find ways so we are not viewed as a gorilla." Given its outsize ambitions, that's one search Google might not be able to handle.
Btw, if you're looking for another article and chart that looks at all of Google's projects and their rivals are, News.com published one yesterday titled, Google--what you get for $400 a share.
Postscript: Everyday can't be an up day for shares of Google (although it often seems like it). Shares of Google closed down about 5% today, lower by almost $20.00 at $403.54.
