Google has been one of the biggest and fastest success stories in corporate history. Now cash rich and embedded in the everyday lives of a billion users, Google has begun to think “what next?” You can’t help but have noticed the plethora of things that they’ve been dabbling with from Google Glasses to driverless cars via mapping, mobile, translation and devices.
