What We'd Like to See
from Google Before 2009

2. OpenSocial Used in Google Apps

Google likes to talk about consumer technologies bleeding over into the enterprise. Show us. In June, Google Product Apps Manager Rishi Chandra told us his team would apply OpenSocial APIs to Google Apps such as Calendar, Gmail and Docs. We want to see Google's Apps team eat some of the OpenSocial dog food to make the applications more collaborative and useful between friends.

Can Google equal or surpass the $17.6 billion or so it earned in online advertising in 2007? That remains to be seen, as do several other things as Google hurtles forward in high-tech for the last four months of the year. In 2007, the company added some more irons to the fire with Android and OpenSocial, both of which should bear some fruit this year. But it's also lost key team members to rival Facebook. Here's what we'd like to see from Google before the New Year.
