Aside

Anticipation …

Persistent rumors that Google is launching a mobile “platform” based on open business models could culminate tomorrow, November 4, 2007.
Here’s the link “href=”http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/20071103/tc_pcworld/139240″ I found. Bunches more online this afternoon so I have to believe that something BIG is going to be announced tomorrow.
ONE big implication: we have now two amazing companies going head to head not so much on “inventions” but through business models. One, Google, is fully about “open” and one, Apple, is fully about “closed”. (And then there’s the plethora of operators / handset providers who continue to try and control the agenda on mobile development but may be losing ground based on these moves.)
