I Guess I'm not the Only One

I guess I’m not the only one who thinks Google is making too many enemies at once. John Gruber of Daring Fireball, riffing off of an MG Siegler post on the Serach+ announcement:

It also occurs to me that there’s no company in tech with as many enemies as Google. Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter — Google has taken the fight to all of them. In this sense they’re like Microsoft 15 years ago.

This just doesn’t seem smart.  I like Google, and I like the services I use from Google.  But they’re running the risk of alienating people who otherwise would like them – a lot.  Not to mention, they’re creating competitive risks where there might not have been any before.

I sense there will be a lot of damage as things settle out, but I expect Google will continue to reap huge profits from Search, regardless.
