QotD: Google Subscription

Question: With all that Google has, including their new Maps, Gmail, and the pre-existing stuff, how much would you be willing to pay if everything but the basic search features became a subscription service?

Expect to see advertising added to the page soon, though.

    I can imagine them charging for Gmail, but several times they have said that they think they can keep it supported by advertising.

  4. You'd pay for Google?!?

  5. My new favorite map site

    Goodbye, Mappoint. See ya, Mapquest. I'm spending a lot of time on map sites, trying to get a handle on where different houses and things are in the Princeton, NJ area. The only map site I'm going to now is...
