Missed news: Google underprices Amazon by 10x

This is a good point that Google’s new App Engine underprices Amazon’s Simple DB by 10 x.

Google is making moves and these are not to be missed.

UPDATE: TechCrunch is reporting that Google is shipping some new geolocation services that he thinks are a big deal.

UPDATE2: We’re discussing the pricing over on FriendFeed where someone points out that the comparison isn’t exactly fair.

UPDATE3: yesterday Google announced a health data API. I think this could be bigger than any of the other stuff we’re talking about today.

  1. Wake me up when they can use JOIN command in their version SQL (Amazon and GOogle). They should be working to have ANSI 92 and an ISO standard for SQL.

    If some one can show me how you would build a facebook or CRM app with out JOIN in your SQL, I would love to see it.

    I could try join the data in a loop after I do 5 querys that bring back a few 100,000 rows, but thats going to eat up all their CPU and will run like a dog.. CORRECTION … SNAIL.
