    And to top it off, they've even taken over Middle Earth (or at least the maps for Lord of the Rings Online).

    That's dramatic, I don't have to fear them. It's a good company and is growing like every business does

    its success is because provide free quality services. Google has the idea of FREE software as linux.

    Another thing that is quite worrying is the amount of personal data Google has control over throughout the world of all of its users, far greater than any government in the world.

    Google didn't create google earth; they bought it.

    I can't think what company created or what it was called, but google didn't make it.

    Funnily enough, the google motto is "don't be evil". Heheh…

    Weren't they coming out with their own OS at some point? I heard about it but never knew if they did or not? Couldn't have been very successful if they did! Or is it still in the pipeline.

    You have to admit, though, Google might do tons of things, but they do them *right*. All of their apps work amazingly well. Unlike Microsoft, where half of their stuff works decently, some of it doesn't work at all.

    Btw, you don't have Google Chrome or Google Buzz on the list. =)

    Still, even if Google is becoming so big, I'm all for it. They do things right, they don't put things out before they're ready. I'm all for Google taking over the world. I bet GoogleGovernment would be AMAZING. ^__^

      This list was created in July 2008. I'm sure in another year we would be able to add 3 more things in addition to Chrome or Buzz. Although I'm skeptical Buzz will be successful.

        Hah, yep… 2008 indeed. I was reading this like 5 minutes after I woke up. Sleepyhead syndrome?

        And I dunno, Buzz seems pretty neat so far.

    This is the worst top 10 list I've ever seen.

    More like "10 google apps and vague descriptions of them." Most of the top 10 do not even mention anything scary or fearsome, just a crappy description.

    There are some things you could fear about google, somehow this article mentions none of them.
