Google Gas Stations? What do you mean? Of course it makes sense! To expand, monopolist companies need to diversify into new markets, and for Google, that means reaching you at the pump.
Specifically, Google will launch a series of internet connected pumps with Google Maps. The pumps, made by Gilbarco Veeder-Root, will help travellers find local attractions, hotels, restaurants, etc.
Face it, Google's got ya, and you like it.
Implications - Essentially, not many can be surprised by this new innovation. Companies like Porsche are releasing fashion lines, while couture lines like Roberto Cavalli are expanding into alcohol. Essentially, if a company has the power to extend their reach into other industries, they will -- and should!
