    Beats the hell out of me how Wal-Mart is a valuable brand. I know I’ve become a big Google fan in last year or 2.

    Google needs to branch out into public transportation on the West Coast.

    I know I sure value Google above most other brands. I use 5 Google products at least 10 times a day. I’m just waiting for the day when the Gmail address book can be fully integrated with a cellphone.

    Google is valuable for now.

    Quick, tell me which search engine you used 10 years ago. I recall using AltaVista quite a bit, and where the hell are they now? Google will have to work hard to stay relevant as time goes on.

    I think it’s safe to say that in another ten years people will still be looking to GE for refrigerators and washing machines. Who knows what the internet will look like then?

    As for Wal-Mart, I wish I could say people wouldn’t still be shopping there for cheap crap from China 10 years hence. But they probably will be.
