I will go also through my little prediction for 2006. Most of them are based on my previous post, and yes, itâ€™s Christmas break:
- Google will buy a Opera(if not already done): the “OS” of Google is the browser, so they need to provide one on platform who does not have one, or a good one. Thatâ€™s why I predict that they will buy a browser company typically Opera. The interest of Opera for Google is that they also have a good mobile offering.
- But Google will move from the â€œGood sideâ€ to the â€œEvil Sideâ€. Too powerfull, too big, too smartâ€¦.
- The “big three”, Yahoo, Google and Microsoft will enters more strongly into mobiles. All will provides much better access to their service to everybody mobile.
- Location based service will increase, especially in North America, thanks to GPS enabled mobiles. In Europe, such mobile will start to appear
