Google is outstanding, the way they absorb acquisitions is admirable, all major buys work: Android, YouTube, ... Motorola will be the next big thing for Google and I'm sure Google will overtake Apple as the World's biggest company.

I think phones will replace PC, at home you just connect your phone to what ever peripherals you have and voila - a PC.

Android has a multi-user feature and phones already can do most things people do with their PC.

I personally am an Ubuntu user here and stay away from Microsoft and Apple products. One is too slow, and the other is too closed in my opinion.

Ummm. Victor, the word you want to use is valuation. Evaluate means to rate something.
