Yes it’s creeping me out that not only will Google have dibs on search profiles and surfing habits (toolbar), website data (for those websites using analytics and/or adsense), email contents (gmail), but also spending habits and revenue/sales (GBuy).
Things going for PayPal:
- Established as an online payment processor for several years (1998) – userbase in the millions
- Very easy to use
vs. Google’s coup dâ€™Ã©tat:
- Whisper the word ‘Google’ and the masses go gaga and stampede to install, upload, download, trick-out, whatever the Google treat of the moment is
I think PayPal’s in for a battle.
GBuy predictions (they want the Holy Grail)
