Tech Prediction for 2007
After another round of acquisitions, including MySpace, Flickr, Yelp and Barry's Totally Awesome Whitesnake Tribute Page, Google runs out of websites to buy.
Thus, Google decides accordingly to acquire itself for an unprecedented $10.4 billion in stock.
"Google is the leader in search and a strong competitor in several other online venues," says a Google spokesman. "It's only natural that Google would want to partner with such an internet powerhouse. That's why we're proud to announce Google Google, which will be in beta for the next 15 years."
(After publication I learned this is from Wired magazine's Alt Predictions for 2007. Unfortunately, the rest of the "predictions" are nowhere near as amusing as the one above.)
