All My Eggs Are Securely in One Basket

All hail Google, the new supreme overlord.

So, I've been using Gmail for a while and I've really enjoyed it. My preferred window navigator is avant-window-navigator. I use Google Reader and Google Calender for my RSSing and calendering. This blog is hosted by Blogger. I'm creating a website using Google Sites. I love playing with Google Earth and SketchUp. I've experimented with Chrome. I belong to Google Groups. I use Google Maps for my directions, and YouTube for my distractions. And just this weekend, I got a phone with android installed on it.

All of the above is created/owned/developed/maintained by Google. Well I guess I'm going to have to use Picasa for managing my photos now.

So am I a Google fanboy, or has Google just managed to infiltrate all aspects of my tech life? I do think they put out some quality applications, but is it a good idea to rely on one company for so much? Is Google the new Microsoft? The answer to these questions are as follows:

Both; I willingly drank the kool-aid.
Probably not, but it's Google, and they don't do anything evil.
Yes, and I don't care as long as I get to keep using android.

So bow down now. Resistence is futile.
