Who's afraid of Google?

I posted a few days about about Google wanting to rule the world … apparently my joke was not unfounded.

Wired Magazine had an article titled Who's Afraid of Google? Everyone that addresses some of the areas in which Google is expanding, such as video, classifieds, telecoms, operating systems, print, productivity programs and ecommerce. What catches your eye in that list? “Operating systms” is what interested me … especially when the article says

If anyone can fulfill the dream of turning the Internet into the operating system, it's Google

Turning the Internet into an operating system? How would that work? Does this mean that we'd have to depend on our connection to the Internet to be strong enough for us to compose documents & spreadsheets? Doesn't sound promising, but I'd love to hear more about it.
