Spigit | Activate Your Crowd |Spigit Predicting Google’s Next 3 Moves Between the potential of Facebook Ads and the launch of Apple’s iAds, many are wondering what’s next for Google. Despite the rumors around Google Me and the potential of Google Android, it looks like the company’s very next move might not be into social or mobile advertising. Rather, the company might be looking at additional ways to middle-man more of the ad-purchases across the net. Some recent moves by Google and its properties indicate that the company is moving to address the concerns from investors that it has limited short-term growth potentials.

BoostCTR: Performance-Driven Ad Optimization for Search and Social Google's Long History of Social Media Attempts [INFOGRAPHIC] Sure Facebook privacy issues can be frustrating, but what's the alternative?

Strawberryjam Apple vs. Google: Shootout on the Small Screen | CIO - Blogs and Discussion Google CEO Eric Schmidt showed off Google TV at the IFA conference in Germany on Tuesday, which followed fast on the heels of Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiling the new $99 Apple TV last week. Looks like another skirmish has broken out between the Silicon Valley behemoths, only this time it's taking place in the living room.

Google's plan is to unite Internet search and content with premium television content under a single user interface. This will enable a consumer to, say, search for actors, movie titles or television series, receive and watch video results all from the TV. Google TV, however, is an ambitious plan with little chance of success, says Gartner analyst Van Baker. While Google vies for the whole pie, Apple has chosen to go after a small slice with its next-gen Apple TV.
