Google goes social admission that algorithms are not the ultimate answer?

I suddenly noticed the other day that some of the better web 2.0 applications are all by Yahoo... I use Flickr instead of Picasa, I use Delicious and I like Yahoo Mail Beta better than Gmail these days (only if they have ever increasing storage!) ! And these days instead of Googling I've been hanging out more and more at the Wikipedia.

Is Google missing the web 2.0 bus? Or has Yahoo been smarter in picking up the most useful web 2.0 companies? Who'll get Youtube? It's more or less left Google Video much behind.

Heck, even the guru of marketing can't seem to get it right!
