Google Answers went no where

So - it looks like Google Answers never took off. Recent reports suggest that Yahoo! Answers is far ahead than Google even though it was a late entrant. I think it is primarily because Yahoo! is great to create a community and maintain it - thats what worked for it.

What do ya think?

Google's Risks

In its latest Quarterly Report, Google talks of the various competitive threats that is facing the company in the future. This has been well documented here - so, i shall spare myself the hard work :).

The one thing that i have always felt - 99% of its revenues come from Ads - now, doesn't that tell u that it could become a 1-trick pony - it desperately needs ways to generate some more super-hits.
Knowing Google, i am sure that they will soon have one.
