“Never say never,” the pundits quip, but this is one time I can — just heard about Google’s new Flight service, which they’ve put into play in competition with Cheap Flights, Kayak, and Orbitz, and it’s the first Google service yet that I never anticipate using, since I don’t fly.
I wish that Google would start up a competitive train service in this country, however, and not just for booking — why not the Google Train System? Given Google’s track record (oops! dreadful pun — sorry) I’m pretty sure they could come up with a viable alternative to Amtrak. And I truly believe that what this country needs is a European-style passenger train system and NOT a good five cent cigar.
More as it happens,
