Google and Optus in bed together

In a press conference this morning at the Opera House, Eric Schmidt announced an alliance between Google and Optus which will bring Google search to Optus Zoo. This will mean Google is building their footing in the mobile market here…just waiting for them to jump in bed with Telstra then that would be about 80% of the market…

Google Press Release

In other Google news, it was also announced this morning that Google would be moving out of their Darling Harbour premises next year and across the bay to purpose built offices called “Workplace6” in Pyrmont. Sounds like big expansion time here in Oz…not to mention their plans for Google Transit in Perth.

I have to ask – why Perth??? Is that because it’s the only city with straight roads where the RTA isn’t constantly performing roadworks or changing the one way system?
