Re: Another Project from Google
I think one of the reasons why we see that google is right most of the time because they probe in every direction and more chances they will take more will be the probability of success. And their success gets more hype than their failures.

Re: Another Project from Google
You are right SunitaT0, windows is still the best single solution as a workstation and Microsoft is doing well to be the only one providing such service by continuously improving and keeping that market share. Their new windows might have failed but it has given MS a base line to not only secure their current market share but also making it tough for their competitors.

Re: Another Project from Google
@Nemos: I think Google is using its investment and time smartly, they have all the things on their portfolio to attract a user but at the same time they are focusing their budget on the new initiative and project which will increase their portfolio. But the main focus will only remain on those ventures which are popular among their users or high return is expected.

Re: Another Project from Google
@jagibbons: True. Google has dodged a lot of bullets in the past 2 years or so, like the court orders imposed on google for the illusion of privacy it provides for its gmail users? Google already stepped on a landmine there but it didn't show up with people, they continued to buy its products regardless of the infamy Google generated due to the court order. This only goes on to prove that without stepping on a substantial landmine that can trigger other landmines, google isn't going down on that loss-margin path anytime soon.

Re: Another Project from Google
If you need a single workstation like feature then maybe you should start looking to microsoft and Windows 10. Android on the other hand has some methodologies that need improving. The cast screen on android is a good office tool while giving presentations and it has even better use in Windows.

Re: Competition is good
I really like the work focused system and how most of the apps have access to the same data but only show the ones you need. I hope this experience would be better once most of the android products start running on lollipop.

Competition is good
While I am not happy with Google's ever tightening lockdown on Android, For Work is a welcome change, especially given the chokehold the iGarbage products have on the market.

Re: Another Project from Google
Sometimes there are trade-offs for free products and services. If the free solution is slow to address security, you might decide to pay for something safer. It's a risk-based investment decision.
