Google and SUN merger

I don't like the idea of Google buying SUN, but the merger of the two will definitely create long lasting effects.

With a single trick (ads on search), Google's growth will soon run into a wall, at that time, its stock will be valued on trailing P/E. Once Microsoft integrates MSN search into every Windows application, watch Google goes downhill fast.

SUN has everything Google doesn't. SUN has chip design, server, storage (not STK, but disk stuff), OS, Java, enterprise server stack, OpenOffie, etc, etc, plus the kitchen sink.

Once SUN and Google are merged, the possibilities are infinite. I don't want to talk about them here -- just use your wildest imagination of world domination.

This is "todospara1":

Google is not a single trick company. They have decades of advantage in the development of indexing/searching algorithms, actually, those are not the words I would use, I would rather refer to technology to understand web sites.

I use gmail regularly, and a plethora of other Google products. All of them are excellent, so superior for instance to Yahoo's that a comparison is meaningless. For me, it is very easy to understand that this company is in its infancy, and they have chose to monetize just advertizing in this point of time. The potentiality of what Google can do is mindboggling.

Microsoft integrating search?

That gives me a hard laugh.

Do you search in MSN? Would you care to explain to your audience how do you think the policies of MSN such as pumping higher the pages that run in IIS and/or Windows don't take away any possible credibility in MSN's searching capabilities?

I wouldn't say that every service Google offers is superior to Yahoo!'s, but Google does have a history of taking what Yahoo! does and making it better. I think Yahoo! plans on becoming a internet media powerhouse and has no interest in taking on MSFT. However, it seems that GOOG is definitely interested in going against MSFT. Brin, Page, and Schmidt are in good financial position to do so, but they still have a lot of infrastructure to build if they intend to compete with Gates, Ballmer, and Co.

One more comment. There are certain services that Yahoo! provides that Google does not yet provide so I use Yahoo!'s service. Nevertheless, I am very excited about what the future holds for Google. Sergey Brin and Larry Page are the world's youngest self-made billionaires, so it will be interesting to see what they do with their fortunes in the coming years.

SUN actually has such great potential all by itself. But it's stuck in R&D mode and not in production mode. By just cutting the R&D and focus on getting existing technology into products, SUN can make very nice profits.

A SUNW/GOOG merger is highly unlikely at this point. SUNW has about 36,000 employees most of whom do hardware and software R&D. Their management is more interested in R&D than making money at this point. GOOG on the other hand is a company that is basically a money machine. With only about 6,000 employees and much more revenue per employee than SUNW, I think it would be best to keep these companies separate. A strong alliance would be great for the both of them, but a complete merger would mix a company with a questionable financial situation with one that has stellar financials. It just wouldn't be good for investors if they were to merge.
