The king is afraid

The 2013 Google Zeitgeist video is picking up momentum, while u watch it, instead of doodling on the wow factor or the laments on how u spent 2013 scratching your eyes on your e-screens, rather than following the ‘world is calling, where are you’ philosophy, note how this year the stress of Google is on ‘voice powered searches’ unlike last year when the stress was on Youtube followed by Googleplus.

This also brings into our minds how Google came up with its new adverts for the desi (India,Pakistan etc) markets where it liked to influence the new age of ‘smart netizens’ or people who primarily and almost only use smart phones/tabs only to browse the web, by impressing upon the psychology – hey look, we also have a smart app for that, u don’t need to type ‘www.google.com’ all the way..The advert worked its charm the sweet way by touching upon the Indo-Pak sisterhood along with the fact that we all love our grand parents (ok most of us do, alright ok, some of us do, fine)…

The king of search seemed to be jittery after its fall flat attempts of venturing into the social media arena..Now Google wants people to know, look we came first, since neither ‘Bing’ nor ‘Yahoo’ has the search by voice option slapped on your face as soon as u type for the browser.. The emperor is getting old, he sees the horizons with his dry & scrotched eyes.For the first time he is afraid, very afraid..
