Google´s new approach to business

Nike

We all have seen the different Google services approaching. And now we see some of them combined into one project: the invitation only joga.com – social software for the Fifa Worldcup. You can share Video Clips there with Google Video, will be able to exchange mails via Gmail. the login works with your Google Account – this will be your new passport to the most important WebServices. And yes, that´s their new business: they are the first who managed to build a virtual identity which really works, profiling every step you take through the net. Now, when will there be the next billing system from Google with a sophisticated API – enabling you to trade your Google-Dollars 😉

Jajah´s license policy

JajahI´ve just followed some discussions around Sequoia investing into Jajah, the Austria based VoIP company. And Matt pointed out, that Jajah´s license agreement (which is only available in english) allows them to collect and share user information with third parties…. I think this is not acceptable. Do you know of other companies digging this information in some deep license agreements?
