Google – success or flop?

Google is one of the biggest success stories of the last decade but according to this, many or most of its non-search engine projects have been failures.

I’m consistently amazed at how much Google resembles the Microsoft of the mid-’90s. Which is to say, a company with a core business so successful that it hides the fact that they fail at nearly everything else they touch.

I use Google for most of my searches (though I’m beginning to like Bing more) along with the Google Toolbar and Picassa. Other than that, I haven’t found much use for any of their other products.
