I don't think Google is diversifying so much because it needs to,
rather you got all them PHDs in R&D somehow trying to justify their
Googley lifestyles, not wanting to give up them big Googlebucks. In
any industry you get one successful product which is great and works
fine and is immediately superseded by version after update as the R&D
and sales and marketing people need to bring out new things to keep
making their salaries. This is a consequence of an economy-based
society. No-one gets the product they want, the dynamic of the society
won't allow for it.

The same arguments were used to explains eBay's use of their MBA's when they
acquired PayPal and Skype. At Google, you have all these skilled people
completing products and having plenty of code to re-use. Moreover, there is
a chance to integrate one product with another. Let me try to find a
suitable reference to what I once read...

As you can see, this pretty much inspired my opinion above. To add, a
business is said to always expand or diminish. It cannot stay static. If
Google remain idle and cannot increase market share, they could soon find
themselves going downwards, progressively.

Or they could improve their original core business of search. But that
would throw a lot of their staff on the scrap-heap and they don't want
to go there. Any day now we'll be seeing search with a
picture-in-picture facility and frame-by-frame. Facilities we haven't
asked for and don't need. All we want is a better search engine, what
they want to give us search filled with needless complexities.
