Why Google won’t create the next Twitter or Facebook or Posterous

Scoble

TechCrunch just published an interview Mike Arrington did with Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, and one quote there caught my eye:

We don’t want to work on problems that only affect a small number of people.

Ahh, that seals it, Google is the new Microsoft. See, when I worked at Microsoft I heard this kind of horsepucky all the time too.

Meanwhile, Facebook with its new iPhone app, becomes the new address book, conversations increasingly are moving to social networking services and away from blogs, while the clueless don’t see the change in front of them.
