Who's afraid of Google? AT&T

Everybody always talks about how Microsoft ought to be afraid of Google. That Microsoft will lose its dominance and Google will be computing's king.

Well, enough hogwash. There's a big enough pie, that keeps on growing, for the both of them. Plus, one will figure out that it shouldn't be competing with the other. Rather, they ought to forge an alliance.

An alliance against the telecoms. AT&T should be quaking in its boots over Google. Google seems to want in on the cellular/wireless business, AT&T's only growing business. And Google has enough cash to buy not only all of the 700MHz property for auction, but probably enough to buy AT&T!

But I'm sure Google wants no part of that "so-last-century" business. Can you imagine AT&T pairing up with Google on anything? Seriously, Kid Rock and Mother Theresa have better chances of hooking up!
