"“Google is all about opening up the world’s information... It’s going against the grain of what Google does.”"
This one was born in the morning and I have to wonder if it was this morning. I find it hard to believe anyone actually buys that crap about opening up anything. The GOOG is all about making money and if you don't believe that feel free to look up GOOG on Nasdaq.
You blokes at el Reg didn't tell the poor Mr. Court that naive wasn't in the dictionary, did you?
