I often step back from all the critisisms of products and think about how much technology allows us to do. My wife is originally from england and her family is still there, video calls help so much with the distance and keeping in touch. Then there's the technical achievements that it allows the general public to experience. It really wasn't that long ago that live television was only available via OTA broadcasts, but yesterday on the train home from work I was able to watch the LeWeb live stream on my phone over a 3G connection.
I may not be able to work in a company like Google that pushes the boundaries of whats possible, but I'm glad I'm in a position to enjoy the fruits of its labour.
