It seems that google is being too good with their search.

Sony never had any sort of reputation for building phones people want. It had nothing to do with android.
HTC alienated their customers with poor service, poor software, and few updates. Again, nothing to do with Android.
They have both failed due to their own faults. Using any other operating system would not have made them successful.
Your politician example doesn't fit - Of course I want to know what a politician is doing - He is representing me. Google does not.
Just because a company has the ability to abuse its position is not grounds for an investigation.
Do you think you should be investigated for murder, robbery, rape and treason just because you are capable of them?
As soon as Google does something to warrant an investigation, then yes - by all means go through everything. Until then, stop trying to take them down just because they are big or because you have some sort of innate trust issues with anyone claiming to be good.
If the guy has a lot of talent, then tell him to take it off. Any place that will hire him because of his religion will not be a good place for a talented person to grow.
However, if he is run of the mill, maybe a good schmoozer, some place where religion and politics rule might be a better fit, so he should leave it on.
I'm not sure I was able to follow the logic in this article..
There are a bunch of books that are still copyrighted, but no one is publishing them because they won't make any money.
Google is securing a deal to publish them online unless/until the author/copyright holder comes forward.
This deal is evil because Google might make some money from these works, and will not have to share that money or allow other organizations to take their work and make some money off it themselves.. If it does make money...
Linux is just a poor windows clone.. It will never be successful (on the desktop) because it will never be windows. However, if google are any way serious, they have the image and clout to redefine the desktop (i.e. get rid of it) and how people interact with their computers. They could end up being a threat to Microsoft in ways that Linux never can.
