VC Fred Wilson explains why he thinks Google has become the “The Starbucks of the Internet:”
Google has recently launched some very attractive web services like Google Local and Google Maps. Their SMS service is a killer app for cell phones. It seems like they are launching a new web service every week. It’s so fast and furious that it is making my head spin.
But I don’t understand how all of these new web services have anything to do with their core business of targeting advertising via search and contextual advertising.
UPDATE: Most commenters have been roundly critical of Wilson’s analysis.
