Google Gears Up For War
Google is readying the troops for the big one with Microsoft by... hiring away everyone from Microsoft. Google has stolen Joshua Block, one of the original designers of Java, four members of the IE team including Adam Bosworth, the "driving force" behind the browser, as well as the lead developer on Avalon, Joe Beda. An analyst suggests Google is about to break into everything, and plans to challenge Microsoft and everybody else on everything that is that internet. The major possibility: the long rumored Google Browser, eliminating the Operating System and giving Google control of your entire world. Microsoft better hope they have an excellent defense strategy. Read the excellent bit of reporting by the New York Post.
