Following Google's april fool joke about the drinks, where do you think google will go next? Will we be buying google bars, google cereal, google crisps/chips et cet? More seriously, what are the next big services google will be providing? Will GMail succeed?

I think next comes Google Golf.
There is 8,000,000,000 holes, but everyone plays at once and only aims for the back 10. Of course, the holes there are much smaller, and only take 1 ball each.
The other 7,999,999,990 players just stand around drinking new GoogleGrog and complaining.
Anyone caught stuffing up the greens and making divots gets immediately removed from the course, and may never be allowed to play again.
Something like that could only be created by Scottish Googlers of course!

nice idea, and maybe there could be a few easy holes with paid admission.

I don't know. I just tend to find that paid membership is always a little over-rated.
I much prefer the idea that any poor bloke from down the street can go along to GoogleGolf wearing whatever they please, and show their stuff (I mean that in a skill way, not a flabby stomach way).
Paid membership? That just means that those rich Volvo-Driving, Hat Wearing prats get to play the back 10 alone because they have deep pockets.
Pretty sad since they have no skill.
I say GoogleGolf should remain a public course with no fee-paying members.

Well, here is a Google new one.
Check out the results of this search (http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=mozclient&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&q=piggy+bank). Note the three separated results in the top 10.
Very strange indeed and I don't like the smell of it at all.

Me too! Guess you read it wrong, but oh well. Thems the breaks with our subtle differences in style of prose.

i know you were mate, i was pretending i didnt get it. Nevermind. I guess i just came across as an idiot rather than someone pretending to be an idiot.
maybe a ;) was required after the 'whatever'
