The Shelf Life of Google

I can't help but wonder, with Google continually producing more and more products related to their search technology, where will it end? I love Google as much as the next person (probably more) and with the competition in high demand I don't think we'll see an outage anytime soon. MSN has been producing some great integration tools for their search service that are outstanding - I love the fact that I can get my search results in an RSS format. That said, where do we draw the metaphorical red-line? Personally I think we will see much more integration with artificial intelligence in terms of searching. We've seen this already present with the recently sold search provider Ask Jeeves which has been around for years. If they are lucky, they will never perfect the search though, because to only make it better keeps them in business - such is the same reason we replace light bulbs every year. What are your thoughts?
