It started out as a software company with a funny little name. Then it conquered the world of search. And now it’s out to conquer the rest of the world.

The company has taken on Microsoft’s once-dominating Office suite, putting comparable software online — at no cost. It’s locking horns with Apple in a battle for the mobile application market. And now, amazingly, it’s challenging Amazon by offering an electronic book service.
If there’s a market out there, you can bet Google is either in it or planning to be.
