Google should stick to maths

Google shuts down Google Answers - losing out to Yahoo's competing service...

I've said it before and I will say it again - Google should stick to math’s and automation instead of trying to compete with Yahoo and Microsoft at what they do best - community/applications/platforms.

The only two things Google has ever hit out of the park were search and advertising. Both involved automating the process of people finding stuff. Automation being the key ingredient. They are great at math’s.

But when it comes to building communities like with Google Answers Yahoo or Microsoft seem to win every time.

Google should stick to what it does best instead of getting distracted by the other 2. If it plays to its strengths then it would minimize it's growing evil image and decrease its wasted efforts.

I guess for now they have the cash to burn, even if all they achieve is keeping Yahoo and Microsoft on their toes.
