Re: [PLUG] Google DNS...?

I get the feeling that google is preparing for their next big "not  
free" product... Google CDN and Caching... And they want to destroy  
any competition, so get the world to use your "free" DNS, then when  
everyone is onboard, launch your CDN and Caching services to the big  
content sites, and bam your in like flynn since most of the world is  
already using you for name resolution requests.
