That is not true. Actually the only product that is giving Google profits is Adwords/Adsense. The rest is not producing enough.
Sure, Gmail, Google Earth, etc are successful on a massive marketing point of view, but not on on the profit side.
Allot of products of Google if not failed never took off. IM is one of them. Froggle another. Google books, even Google Checkout is not a major merchant system like PayPal is. I can go on and on. Google has dozens of products and people know their Search, Earth, Gmail, Adwords, Adsense, and now Chrome which is not yet there. How can you call other 50 google services? A failure? Maybe not, but not a market leader.
As far as I know Chrome or Android is a market leader either yet and dont be fooled by Microsoft, they can jump into the cloud OS faster then Google and they will with Windows Seven. By the way, Android sucks and Chrome. Oh hell, that browser is screaming fast but is the more unstable browser on a production enviroment ever. We cannot keep Chrome running more then 3 hours reloading or Ajax monitoring screen without seing that message "opps, Google Chrome seems to have crashed". And its the only one that crashes before 1 day. Firefox last at least 3 days without having to the exit it and reopen it again and Explorer last 2 weeks and Opera never crashes.
Google has a big name behind everything but dont be fooled by that. It doesnt mean they are the best at everything. They sure want, and they would leave all of you that are in the hosting industry out of business if they could do it. Thats is sure, specially because they try now some webhosts to integrate their webmasters tools into their control panels. What people dont realize is that Google is building a massive client list with that and they will soon lauch a similar cloud/hosting service, and there you go hosting companies, flush the toilet. Do they care? No. Its just money for them. If people say Microsoft was evil its because they had not idea on what Google is up. They want to be everywhere and own data on a massive scale. Its all about control and Google is doing it perfectly.
