They need to think smaller scale, something lot of people can afford, maybe an alternative to a gas generator that people use in wind storms or bad weather. Something enough to power a small heater or something. All that needs to be done is to get the mass production wheels spinning, then you can change gears later and talk big investments.

No pun intended.

I hope they succeed, but I just don't buy that they will. Also, I have to wonder what their angle is. As has been pointed out before, Google is not a technology company. They are an advertizing company. Every bit of money they make is from some form of advertizing. How are they going to work that into solar energy?

But I think diversification can be a good thing.  They are a company with many very smart people with a lot of different interests.  If they can find more concrete ways to make money by innovating, then that should be good for the company.

This is why I like Google so much. The bigger they get, the more cool stuff they do. I'm also a fan of the whole "use all our cool stuff for free" approach.

They were founded on free products, if they got greedy and started charging they would loose a lot of customers so it's a inate check and balance. The most you'll probably see is embeded adds in their projects. maybe built in self powered TV at their solar plants that are near highways?

Funny, this kind of reminds me of the bit in the movie "Demolition Man" where all restaraunts were Taco Bell.  Except, in the future all companies will be Google.
