Google One Pass goes up against Apple's online payment service | Media | guardian.co.uk
It basically talks about all the areas that are about to become paid in Google. My initial reaction was that this was a bad thing in terms of the internet and that it was becoming sectioned off, this is not what the internet was about.
But then I started thinking about it from the point of view of a marketer, and now see it as a fantastic opportunity.
The reason is that more people will now become more accustomed and comfortable with paying for information online. Primarily as IMers we sell and market information. So Google has really done us a fantastic service in terms of lowering the barriers and getting people into the "you need to pay for quality information online mentality".
