When we start analyzing the different branches and business units we see: Google began in college, remember? – We can not help but feel some concern, especially when we realize how many activities we do daily are related to Mountain View, California. Since informed, seek entertainment, send an email, or planning our next trip, there is little human activity at a point not touch Google. Recently, Google asked the U.S. authorities permission to become a supplier of electricity. The idea, as expressed by its managers, is to achieve self-sufficiency, and sell in the market over the medium term. Chevron Corp has many thoughts on the issue.
But that’s not all. Now going by the closed and regulated telecommunications market. Since 2008, Google began to show interest in acquiring licenses for certain frequencies of radio waves, like those used by Verizon to provide cellular telephone service. In 2007, Google acquired an unknown developments in telecommunications company: Grand Central, with the sole intention to develop the service that launches today at the invitation exclusive: the Google Voice. Google Voice has been defined as the universal telephone number service that the rest of the tel-com should have offered long ago.
Consider for a moment. Most people have at least three phone numbers: your house, your phone and on the job. Many times a person has two phones for labor issues, or, if their work takes place in different locations, over a working telephone, adding a dedicated fax. In short, many phone numbers for a single individual. With Google Voice, all those numbers will be reduced to one. Imagine a smart phone, which distinguishes if you call a relative, or a person you do not wish to attend. The first call will ring, the second will go straight to voice mail. Let’s go a step further. Want to raise your messages voice, which at the end of the day can be many. Do not worry, Google will send you by e-mail messages you receive, ie, transcribed thereof. The service continues to be VOIP (voice over IP), is not a new circuit or the laying of cables, but a set of technologies that enable transmission of voice through the internet. But part of the circuit through the laying of telephone land lines. Consequently, the telephone are nervous, by the new competition, and the government knows very well how to regulate this service “hybrid.” This new business unit, added to Google Nexus, the first manufacturing cell “made in Google”, plus all the technology that has accompanied this release (the Android mobile operating system, the GPS mapping service that Google offers free via Google Maps, and others) shows us in what direction will the movement of this giant, and how, although strictly speaking still do not see big profits from these operations (9 out of every $ 10 you are entering by way of Google), set the trend, a trend that we have to follow very closely, because they are making the future of the internet.
