We all know that GOOG will eventually move into travel in a big way, it's inevitable right? Well im seeing some little rumours pop up across the blogosphere right now, including the following little snippet...

CoolTechZone::Google Enters the Traveling World, Targets Expedia

Industry sources close to Google and a select number of traveling sites confirmed that the search giant is expected to launch a travel site of its own, which will directly compete against Expedia, Travelocity and a host of similar sites.

What Google can do within the purview of this service is frightfully interesting. It can search for and give you the absolute best fares from virtually all travel sites on the web (similar to a major aggregator). It will then move forward and give you the best rates on your hotel room in a similar fashion.

GOOG want everything. Expedia et al, you're next in the fireing line...

Travel, Jobs and Porn

If GOOG want to take over all the big markets I wonder if they'll ever go into porn? I look forward to seeing what they do with travel.
