by Don Reisinger
As the premier search company in the world, it wouldn't be necessary for Google to branch out into other markets. The amount of revenue it derives from its core business easily climbs into the billions of dollars. Thanks to that, the company has little reason to compete in other areas of the tech industry where competition is fierce and opportunities to succeed are few and far between. But Google doesn't care. The company has been making its way into several markets, including mobile phones, productivity suites and browsers. It recently announced that it's planning to build a fiber network that would deliver 1G-bps Internet speeds to those connected to it. Google isn't the kind of company that is content to stay put. The search giant has a tendency to shake things up in every market it enters. And these markets are in desperate need of some shaking up. This slide show looks at 10 other spaces where we'd love to see Google compete.
