nice list, but I disagree withe barcode and recommender

BarCodes are dead – and it will be RFID's for the futures-- so google needs to factor this for all commodities strategy and local search SERP

"Recommender" – is as iffy as "images" with Adwords.. There is no way I can recommend the kewl new stuff without manually intravention for quiality recommendation lists.. that means a "mech turk" sceanrio

I liked actually the travel recommendation.

BTW, I think Georges Harik background is Genetics background and the whole PageRank algorithm is not far from social genetics research.

When you think Network, think always Genetics.

What about Google Music?

Crimebusters is a little too big-brother for my tastes. I'd prefer it if Google and law enforcement remained seperate!

Susan- Google Music.... well, there's kinda one already; just search for an artist or band and you usually get a "more music results" option. ie.,

Google should also spend some time making this existing products better. Two examples: Blogger is butt-slow/timing-out again today ... and the Google API is known to be flaky.

Neat ideas:

- Google Billboards
- Google Travel
- Sing / Draw search ... I like the idea of using alternative input methods to simple plain text
- Google Storage ... though in small for, this's already available via gMail, and it's also been rumored widely, esp. after one of their press conference presentations was leaked

Far too invasive (I don't love Big Brother):

- Google Genetics
- Google Crimebuster ... and hey, isn't click fraud a crime? Would the application turn in its master, or would its head a splode?

Um ... is it just me, or did these ideas come straight out of John Battelle's book / blog? Ought to credit him, IMHO ...

- Google TV
- Google BarCode

How about a Web wide Video search and a web wide music/audio search. Rather than Google Video And Google Music
