developing a service to attach its lucrative keyword-based advertising to
email: ''I'm sure Google is getting more and more concerned about locking
in users. It wouldn't surprise me if they did something very sophisticated
with e-mail,' said Danny Sullivan, editor of SearchEngineWatch.com, who
tracks the industry.' Apparently, Google has purchased an e-mail management
software maker and registered the domain name googlemail.com. The article
also speculates that Google is slowly on the way to becoming a
full-fledged portal, with the gradual addition of more and more portal-like
features like Froogle."
"More software projects have gone awry for lack of calendar time than for all
other causes combined."
