platform450Google is acting more like a true platform every day.

Consider its new privacy policy. To make a long story short, information obtained by Google will be shared throughout its platform. There will be greater integration among planks. For instance, watching a YouTube video on Led Zeppelin might lead to more ads in Gmail related to the 1970s classic rock legends.
