I disagree. Honestly, Google isn't really pushing anything all that

They aren't innovating, they are just beating people on quality.

They didn't "invent" searching they just made it 1000 times better than the
next guy.

They didn't "invent" gmail, they just had to not be hotmail.
They didn't "invent" google maps, they just had to make it prettier.
They didn't "invent" writely, they bought it.

The only thing they really lead in is quality and flawless execution.

While taking them into consideration for future development is a wise idea,
putting handcuffs on because of their direction would be a huge mistake for
anyone period.
