Dear waze team,

I was really afraid about that news, because if someone have no need about waze to do Waze, it is Google. They have the map, the have community, they have social network, they have advertising, and all the rest.

But. You always made good choice. That's why I choose to continue this amazing adventure with you.
You always been confident.

Congratulation to you. We're now waiting for the Champagne Shower.
Cheers

No they only own a technology their competitor won't get.

This post captures some of my concerns. I'm relatively new to Waze but have enjoyed using it an participating in the community spirit. Joining Google, while it begins relatively benignly, will inevitably cause a joining to the Google corporate culture. I wonder how long Waze will remain. As soon as the founders begin to regret joining the Googleplex and jump ship, the Waze identity will fade.

I am also concerned as an iPhone user that Waze will switch to an Android-centric system. Nothing has been said but I can see Google pushing the developers to make the Android based system a little "better" than their competitors application.

I'll stick around for a while but wonder for how long.
