Why a monopoly
This is dumb.. Googles lawyers will wrap them in knots; or are the people promoting this so confident they can bend reality through the power of prolonged legal argument?
You see, I have always had choices; I am NOT forced to use Google for search, and indeed, I don't; I principally use Bing these days, mostly because I think they do a better job of matching technical terms in searches. and partly because I'm lazy and it's it's two less characters to type.
To summarize my argument:
www.altavista.com (yeah! history.. to emphasise that Google has never been a monopoly)
- How about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_search_engines
Install windows and it will not default to Google; (it will sorta default to Bing, if you click 'ok' everywhere like most users do).
All this emphasis on search via google.com diverts attention from where real problems might be found.. such as in Android and Chrome; where Google is embedded in the device at a very deep level.
