Our Artists sell art in our Art Marketplace and Programmers are allowed to sell scripts in the Programming Marketplace. We've been opened since 2011 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our List of Virtual Pet Sites has a lot of Sim Games listed as well. You are more than welcome to check out our directory of sites and find a new game to play. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our Game Reviews and Interviews with Coders, Artists, Writers and Game Owners of the industry.

    What do you all think of Google's domination in, well almost everything.

    Google Web Search
    Google Chrome
    Google Desktop
    Google Earth
    Google Maps
    Google News
    Google Toolbar
    Google Code
    Google Calendar
    Google Alerts
    Google Mobile
    Google Mail
    Google Docs
    Google Translate
    Google Books
    Google Sites
    Google Talk
    Google Sketchup
    Google Knol
    Google Directory
    Google Health
    Google Finance
    Google Realtime
    Google Product Search
    Google Patent Search
    Google Android
    Google Chrome OS

    Not to mention they also own at least some percentage of:

    YouTube
    Blogger
    AOL
    reCAPTCHA
    Metaweb
    Etherpad

    Here is a full list:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_acquisitions_by_Google

    What do you think of this? As you can see by the Wikipedia page, Google has already bought four companies this year!

    I imagine, not too long from now, there'll be a Google Pharmacy, Google Car and whatever else they can think of.

    Is Google's domination positive or negative to you and what do you think will the future holds?

    Well i will start with this.....

    Youtube is google owned they are the ones who started it. It's not a %.
    Same for blogger
    The rest I;m not sure.


    I find that it's a cool thing but it can be a positive thing as long as their is always some sort of competition because if google gets greedy everybody would leave to the other one and google wouldn't be able to charge to expensive and stuff. It is especially good for the owners. LOl

    Google did not start YouTube, and I know that Google fully owns that company.

    So it would be 100%...

    I stated "at least some percentage of" because I knew that some were only partial, but I wanted to generalize them into one short list.

    Yes, I agree that it has some positive aspects, and indeed particularly for website owners.

    It is nice to have a variety though, because Google can't please everyone.

    Thanks for your input!

    I've been a huge fan of Google for a while - all the tools that they offer for us webmasters. It makes everything so easy.
    And not to mention all the traffic it brings to websites. :)

    Especially since they have mobile phones out now as well as a social networking site. It's been amazing seeing Google grow into a power-house over the years.:cool:

    I bet you anything they will become the US Government. xD
