Be careful what you wish for...

At the end of the year you can find a lot of lists on the web. Lists of what happened in 2008 and predictions on what will happen in 2009.

On the forum of Blogoscoped Brinke Guthrie decided it was time for another approach. He started a wishlist for what Google should be implementing / doing in 2009. With all the launches it has had in 2008 not a bad idea. Now we have to find out if Google is 'listening' to its users. We will see at the end of 2009...

Add your wish in the forum, but we better be carefull what we wish for...

To give you an idea of some of the wishes that are posted below you can find some interesting ones. The ideas are numerous, from a GDrive to "Consider moving Google out of America"...

Some of the wishes:

  • Gdrive
  • Gmail out of beta
  • GMail SMS for the rest of the world
  • Google Presentations
  • Saving pdf attachs
  • More YouTube television shows available for AppleTV
  • Video viewer
  • Folders in Web Albums
  • Allowing renaming of labels in Google Reader

Some funny or interesting quotes:

  • Chrome for Mac "but I won't use it probably..."
  • May Google never melt down like the banks did...
  • Grand Central cover up Puerto Rico
  • Allowing Iranians to download Google Softwares and Applications
  • No longer have to type your password in each time you want to access Google analytics!
  • Stop siding with repressive governments to censor the Internet
  • Consider moving Google out of America and choose a country where the American and other Western Governments can't put pressure on you – and think of the tax concessions you could negotiate.
  • purchase Facebook, integrate Facebook ads into AdWords
  • Street view for INDIA
  • Make Contacts suck less.

And lots and lots more....

  • I too was surprised, but the high-end specs – Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, the ability to expand memory and the price, just make it too hard not to declare the ASUS ZenFone 2 the winner of this comparison.
