Of course in his follow up article (pbs.org/cringely/pulpit/2007/p ...), he goes a bit crazy and claims the only way to beat google on this is for ISPs to set up some sort of second p2p internet, which doesnt seem likely to me

It does sound a bit scary.
And for SEO the next question is: will they use that data to rank websites?

what a crock cringely is. increasing their backbone connections 30x will not kill profits. they've been expanding the backbone for years. it's a little like saying your old 1985 computer can't handle the computing tasks today which require 30X the processing power. Fine but new computers are faster just as new routers, switches, etc will all become faster.

When Tech refreshing, should have a time space for some companies die, some companies born, and some companies grow. I agree to the main thinking of this posts.

Google really have chance to be web when this tech refreshing. Just like Mircrosoft ever made the software nearly equal to Microsoft.

Well, if Google can access our Internet surfing habits, this means they can make use of this and make money out of it from its famous 'content matching' technology. By installing Google Toolbar, you can access the Internet for free with unlimited bandwidth yet, Google will display ads in the toolbar which will be totally relevant to what you see on the web and because they are *so* targeted, CTR will increase and Google will earn more. The cycle goes on and basically this can tear down all the online advertising as no one can make ads so personalized as Google. ;)
