Will Google Be Banning Its Search Engine For Eyeware?

Updated on April 10, 2012

Google has released news of its eyeware produce called possibly Google Glass. Will Google abandon its search engine website, probably not, since the Google search engine is what put them on the map, but its eye ware software will probably put them on map in a totally new direction.

Do You Think Google Can Succeed With This?

What I notice more about Google is that it tried hard to dominate the online market with everything from social networks, including Google Plus, Okrut and Google Buzz as well as its Google Maps that I find much more accurate the online map sites like MapQuest. Google Labs just seems to churn out service after service and for the most part, they are pretty good, even though most of them are in beta.

What Is The Big Deal About Google Glass?

Google Glass will be one of their newer hardware products and will have all of the great Google software built in including Google Maps, Google Plus, Gmail, as well as cell phone services with the Android operating system built right in. How about the Google product Latitude? The glasses would be great for that service too.

Should Other Websites Like Facebook Be Threatened?

Yes. Think about it. Google Plus is getting close to Facebook as one of the most powerful social networks, especially for business and personal. While LinkedIn is still the market leader in B2B social networking and Facebook is the market leader in personal social networking, Google Plus is the market leader in the combination of the two. Now, when you walk down the street, sit in the passenger seat or commute on the train, you will not even need your cell phone. These glasses have everything built in and are said to be lightweight.

Do I Think Google Can Succeed With This Product?

Maybe, but if Google launches this product, they should probably also hire fashion designers, because people will still want to look cool while there wear these devices. People will need to make choices like they do with normal glasses.

Other Business Relationships That This Product Can Create:

If this is going to be a success for Google, I see them teaming up with retailers like Lenscrafters who own the market in eyewear and possibly independent optometrists.

Apple: Since Google pretty much pioneered the Android operating system together, I can see this creating new competitive opportunities for Apple. And to add extra competition to Facebook, this product can also make Google Plus even more successful. I think Mark Zuckerberg should probably think about joining the two or teaming up with other companies that can add some competition.

      Yes, Glenn, we all correct each other and at the same time, we help each other. I think I will follow you and check out your hubs. You seem like an interesting tech person!

      Glenn, you mean "monitize", not "monitorize". Correct?

      I have a feeling Google Glass will never be accepted. Google just has it in beta right now, just to see if the marketplace reacts positively to it. But the people I ask all tell me they are afraid of bumping into things if they walk around with the Internet in their vision all the time. It's a gimmick. But I think it will stay that way.

      As for Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg already IS acquiring the competition before they can compete with him. Such as the purchase of Instagram for $1 billion. I am sure he plans to grab up more.

      And as for your comment about Apple and Google. I see that 'psychic dog' already corrected you on the fact that Android is 100% Google. But as an added note... Apple will probably be helping Google when they release Apple TV by the end of the year. It will most likely integrate Google AdSense to monitorize network television even better that present day advertising. A whole new world is coming soon.
