Look to the future: The supreme ruler of the internet

In my previous post, Web applications, the right way to the future I've pointed you to some great web apps lists from where you can chose the right application for you or your company. I've posted a link to Google app engine powered web applications to. Why I mentioned it? Because I will tell you about Google and my point of view about how Google is in a race by him self to conquer the Internet.
Now, to get to the subject, since Google have left developers create web applications on the same engine that their own applications run will attract more users on the Google's side, since users with a Google account can simply log in to any Google app engine powered web application.
Announcing the open sign-ups at Google app engine now every one can try to create his own web application. They even posted on Google app engine blog the expected pricing as follows:
  • $0.10 - $0.12 per CPU core-hour
  • $0.15 - $0.18 per GB-month of storage
  • $0.11 - $0.13 per GB outgoing bandwidth
  • $0.09 - $0.11 per GB incoming bandwidth
That if your application will need more that the free account will give you, that means:

  • 500MB of space
  • 5 millions page views / month
Now, if you want that your application to work offline too, you can enhance your web app with Google gears API. Not to mention that 2 new APIs have been released from Google, the image manipulation API and memcache API. You can boost your web app even more by using all the other APIs that Google gives to you.
I wonder witch big company can follow Google in this race on conquering the Internet !?
