had a convo with a mate, and this topic was brought up, so thought i'd post it here and get some discussion happening about it.

What do you think would happen if Google went bust and there site closed down?

Would the web come to a screaming stop?
Would life go on and some other search company simply pickup where google left off?

Lets face it Google don't just do search anymore and its the main starting point for so many Web users.

Many rely on Google for income though products such as ADSENCE and search results.

So what do you think would happen.?
