Google’s First Mistake


Reaction to Google’s buyout of Pyra, the parent company of Blogger. Some critics think it is not a good fit: “Google’s never run a service that requires users to pay. Blogger Pro and all of the variations of BlogSpot Plus, not to mention BloggerDomains and whatever other auxiliary services Pyra offers, are all for-pay services, and though it’s possible that Google is going to try to turn those users into people who pay for additional features from Google in the future, the reality is that it puts Google into a far different role than they’ve had so far.”
