From the X File Dept: The New Google “X” Coming Soon

3223c Google's getting truly spooky! During CEO Eric Schmidt’s IFA keynote in Berlin on Tuesday he revealed some futuristic forecasts of the next gen Google 

—“We’re about to see a new age of augmented humanity, when computers will make it possible for us to do what we really want to do

—“The internet has replaced the economics of scarcity with the economics of ubiquity. Any business that is built on controlling the flow of information is having difficulty.”

—“Your car should be able to drive itself! After all, your car knows where it is, knows where the other cars are and where it should be going.”

—“A near-term future in which you don’t forget anything, because the computer remembers. You’re never lost.”

—“Not only are you never lonely, you’re never bored! We’ll suggest what you should be watching, because we know what you care about.”

—“We can suggest what you should do next, what you care about. Imagine: We know where you are, we know what you like.”
