The honeymoon is over
Oh well, folks, the honeymoon is over. So much for "don't be evil"... it now seems to be "don't be evil, ever, but sometimes you can not be less evil than at other times". (Sorry, Eric Arthur Blair, for that horrible, mangled paraphrase.)
In some respects I'm more concerned about Google than Microsoft, these days --- yeesh, I never thought I'd see myself type THAT. But it's true. M$ just wants to make money and to hold on to the effective monopoly on OSs it's created for itself. Compared to Google, which seems to want nothing less than to know everything about everything and everybody, or at the very least to know where you can find it, it's positively inoffensive.
Anybody else reminded of that blob-creature at the end of "Akira", swallowing up everything in sight?...
