Google: Why it’s so much more than just a search engine

Its activities beyond the internet, however, receive less attention. In the week that Britain cancelled orders for new Nimrod spy planes, it’s striking to learn, for example, that Google recently placed an order with a German company for spy drones equipped with night vision cameras.Of course, Google has peaceful plans for its drones – it’s thought they might enhance the web giant’s mapping services, despite strident objections in some circles about privacy – but the move into the skies is evidence of a company growing way beyond its search and small ads roots. Having conquered the Earth, Google even has its sights on the heavens, with plans to launch mobile phones into space.
