I was in love with Apple for 30 years. We are separating, but will continue to be good friends (because virtually all my hardware right now is Apple). I've explained to Apple that i've fallen in love with Google.
I just bought GoogleTV because it's better than AppleTV. I have a feeling it may be the first Google hardware product in a long string of hardware products — especially including Google glasses, the inexpensive Google tablet (for reading and internet use while on the go), and a Google driverless car (i need that badly as i cannot multi-process, and have a couple of flat tire incidents to prove it).
It has really been Google+ — its elegant implementation and its observable desire to unify all Google collaborative and knowledge seeking services under one spectacularly robust dashboard — that has caused me to fall in love with Google.
And the more i learn about Google, the more i love the company, its management, and especially its continual efforts to seek feedback from its users and customers. I personally have experienced seeing Google react to feedback suggestions i made on Google+, where there is a feedback tab on the lower left of every page (as we Google+ users know so well). I love that Google+ management holds video hangouts looking to engage users and seeking their advice.+Larry Page
, you are a 21st century leader with your eye on the 22nd century: So uncommon, but there's great hope for humanity and transhumanity if your style of leadership catches on.
(In the meantime, i hope you are carefully listening to +Robert Scoble
's critical comments about Google+, because he is insightful, sharply analytical, and in touch with many new start-ups, perhaps more than any other individual on the planet.)
