And -- -- the Raymond James all right what kind of wrapping up the covers I understand that.
Larry Page co-founder and the chief executive just took the stage.
But Aaron what's your take on their conference of fog and the announcement that that the announcements that have been made.
Yes so are pretty good I wanted to there's any big surprises yet -- -- surprises maybe -- bought this music offering although at somewhat been rumored.
I'm definitely trying to take on Spotify and that's based on -- say less competition for pandora -- -- -- paid service forest pandora's more free.
The top of -- many mapping features making mapping when more personalized.
As well as a virtual gaming common as well.
Google continues to activate a lot of users they've activated 900 million users on android now.
That's ups and if -- for about 400 million users a year ago so clearly and dirty business and continues to gain massive share.
But we have a living thing about Google gloss is that right.
But yeah how much -- we lost today maybe many layers -- -- -- comment on that but I haven't seen too much John.
Grew -- has yet today but guess stay tuned.
Do you think that is still a project their interest and I've heard that people just don't think it's very cool looking -- have problems with.
Privacy issues businesses saying they're not going to be allowed into the -- to the establishment has battery -- -- sounds like there's a lot of problems with -- project do you think -- gonna stick -- that.
I didn't near term -- stick -- -- I think at the crew bosses still opted not to debate the fact that people wouldn't leave their cell phones for group gloss is I think.
Hard to believe right now but you never know maybe in ten years will be -- -- my do we ever -- on a cellphone and.
So they're reinventing Google Maps is how they put it says since -- -- -- is back in 2005.
What are some of the cool features a lovely a new map service.
Yeah I think really about maps is about us continuing to integrate a lot of content -- -- those acquired especially so to talk about restaurants you can integrate.
The got reviews -- for travel Arafat from merger news.
That should not integrating more contents.
Into the maps to personalize -- more -- towards the user base out.
Think that'll continue to be featured -- who goes out there's really integrating more content today and user.
Interesting slow shaking up the video game world perhaps by.
Providing I guess how would you putted a cross platform access is this a big day a big big deal in the video game world.
Yeah office they have and I think it's so early in terms of cross platform -- gaming today -- lot of Tebow.
Are obviously some playing games and I think gated city it's still kind of -- had driven business so.
They -- to see how much traction it gains but definitely a little more interest him back to those made me more in the virtual gaming space at this point.
It's interesting the what else would you expect from this company Google -- -- -- shouldn't you know such a strong brands.
It's the music direction is that something that's a good move for them I know is expected but do you think it makes sense.
Yes I think every whether it's through a lot of players whether it's Google Amazon apple -- all going after kind of a digital media space and off platforms for this.
I -- just he faced and he -- again that's based more as well.
But I think that's a natural I think with tennesseans do good things -- making an attempt to go more to the commerce space.
Tom given that -- large part of their revenues in the commerce maybe 40% of revenues and Divx that more people go directly -- Amazon that's negative from 20 so thank you goes -- a look at how to they really becoming e-commerce partner.
To a lot of third party players I think they're gonna make a big attempt to really become most.
-- I compete against him in Amazon or eBay and more.
And the stock -- hitting 901 bucks right now.
Small room to the upside you think.
We think -- continue to move higher I think Mobil's doing well for them right now nominee clearly app advertising growth is still strong.
That's probably partly a function of apple not doing as -- about money has to go somewhere about Tom I think you go to violations a reasonable here I think has -- to -- Fascinating stuff there and I -- was Raymond James out in San Francisco thanks so much for joining us.
