Personally I adore Google's tactics. They first open myriads of projects, designed for everything that can hardly come into one's mind, then count costs vs. profits and close those least successful. Today the board has announced another series of spin-offs. In the heat of the moment are such portals as Knol (a projected Wiki rival) and Wave (a service designed for corporate communication). The decision also touches upon Google Gears, a web plugin that gives offline access to Gmail and Calender, and the Google Search Timeline's graph of historical results for queries.
I'm sure the majority of you has even never heard of these projects, so you will almost definitely lose nothing because of Google's passion for money :)
Well, those are not Google Desktop, right?
