Time Magazine, Owner of AOL: Google Has Won

May 23, 2009

Short honk: Article in Time Magazine called “What Will the World Do with More Search Engines?” here. Author: Douglas McIntyre. The quote that speaks for itself:

Creating a new search engine is a tremendous risk at this stage because it’s remarkably expensive to build and market one that has any chance in the mass market. To make the proposition harder, not only do people prefer Google to other products, but also most people are not able to tell whether a search product coming to market now is better. Good is so excellent that it is not good anymore.

Translation: Google wins. That’s what makes traditional journalism so darned wonderful.
