    For some reason, I can't add photos to the caption (as others can). Here is the photo that was supposed to be above:

    autonumbri alune kiri on päris hea nali - Google "one of the new century's most cunning enterprises. If there were any lingering doubts, 2005 erased them. Google's sales jumped an estimated 50 percent to $6 billion, its profits tripled to a projected $1.6 billion, and Wall Street answered with an unprecedented vote of confidence: a $120 billion market cap, a share price soaring above $400, and a price/earnings ratio close to 70."

    the future???
    Scenario 1 (Circa 2025): Google Is The Media
    Scenario 2 (Circa 2015): Google is the Internet
    Scenario 3 (Circa 2020): Google is Dead
    Scenario 4 (Circa 2105): Google is God

    "Scenario 4 (Circa 2105): Google is God"

    ix, you surely meant "Google is Evolution". Must have been a... typo. God doesn´t exist, you know. ;-) (OK, I don´t know that for certain myself, but some knowledgeable people are very sure).

    Or wait. Is that statement really implying that by 2105 and after 2020's Death, Google "doesn't exist"? As a cynic and subtle transposition of predicates?

    Just kidding!

    ;-P

    to Alianess - I know not so much, I just know what they say, and can have an oppinion about that. I know Steve would think Google is Evolution - "evolving a friendly system and puting a design over it".

    You don't have to worry about me for thinking that there is a God, I have tried the concept for 10 + years, and I am dissapointed that there is no God, I hoped there was. but time probably loses meaning soon, so I have probably not wasted any for looking for Him/Them/IT...all these years.

    if you read the article under the link you would think we have reacher the singularity era long before 2105 if Google is not dead destroied by a possible brutal system of 2020:
    "By 2020, They-Who-Were-Google had digitized and indexed every book, article, movie, TV show, and song ever created. By 2060, They could tell you the IP address and GPS location of every wireless smart chip (now bred into the DNA of every person, animal, and organic building on earth).
