"Hardware seems to be some commodity to Google. I think it is trying to focus more ubiquitous OS or intelligent software or cloud service."

Alex, their business intentions are different. They are looking for platform as a service and their recent offerings are LED as a service, Robot as a service etc.

"if I knew the answer to that question, i'd be in a higher ranking position than managing editor of EBN! :)"

Hailey, don't degrade yourself. You mean that EBN managing editor post is nothing worth, common :)

@Ariella, if I knew the answer to that question, i'd be in a higher ranking position than managing editor of EBN! :) That being said, i find myself wondering if this isn't one of those instances where many of Google's moves are around getting experienced and talented engineers. Here in the Silicon Valley there's a real shortage and the salaries are unreal for those who have proven themselves. That being said, with the Internet of Things on the horizone (and the not too distant horizon at that) some of these moves make sense in terms of leveraging and getting ahead of the packin those areas.

""Robot as a service," interesting. I can picture it marketed as "Rent-a-Robot" -- all the upside of having it around when you need it without the hassle of programming and maintenance."

Ariella, based on the service they are going to offer, it can also defined as Rent a Robot. There is no doubt that Google may venture into various services in near future.

"What do you think is within Google's larger vision?"

Ariella, I think they may continue in IT & software by diversifying to different domains. The recent sale of Motorola points to that direction. Apart from that they start offering 'Lighting as a service' and may be within a couple of months they start offering 'Robot as a service'.
