Does anyone remember Netscape ONE?
No, not version 1 of Netscape but 'Netscape ONE' - Open Networking Environment or some such backtronym? This was Netscape's attempt to claim that their mishmash of random conflicting technologies based on companies they had bought plus their browser (and gee, writing a competing one of those was always going to be a gargantuan task, ha ha) was an architecture.
Google's 'strategy' reminds me a lot of that and I suspect in the medium term will do them about as much good.
If I thought Microsoft hadn't forgotten more than Google has ever learned or will ever learn about how to execute anything, and if my money wasn't all going into baked beans and bullets in anticipation of the collapse of civilisation I would be long on Microsoft and short on Google.
