Go Google

Wow...Google's amazing. I heard today rumors about a possible PC or Google-brand hardware in the near future. I'd love to have it. Google has aleady been providing great services online and keeping with their motto of "Don't be Evil". It's a truely amazing company. I would give up on Windows for a Google OS and I wish they'd make printers too, so they'd finally work right.

I heard recently about a deal with AOL and Google in the works. I don't know what all this would affect for me, as I don't use AOL, but it's a terrible idea for Google. AOL bes Evil, the opposite of Google's first commandment. AOL is the SPAMMiest of the big Internet companies. It sends out unwanted CDs to everyone several times a year. They also insist on their users using their own web Browser, full of excess junk they want you to see. Google is all about getting rid of that junk. The only thing on Google's search page is your relevant searches, ads labelled to the side and relevant searches from other Categorical sections. However, maybe Google will change AOL and make them behave appropriately. This deal will surely bring more power and potential to AOL and Google and will most likely be good in the long run. I disapprove of them choosing AOL for this though, unless they intend to have a good, long talk with them about how to be a mature, responsible Internet company.

Speaking of Google, there is one critic that I know of that opposes them. Daniel Brandt operates a site called Google-Watch.org which is full of ramblings against Google (their PageRank system, privacy issues, cookies, etc.) It seems that Brand also operates a site called Namebase.org which doesn't rank high on Google's search. It seems this is probably what caused the hatred of Google. But I assure you, his website doesn't deserve a ranking on Google. No one wants to read any of it. His site looks like a piece of crap full of cheesy Paint drawings and subject links such as: Terrorism, Big Business, Assassinations, UFOs, Nazis, Elites, etc. This is obviously a conspiracy nut.

So you like Google, "dont be evil" you say. Let me fill you in on another piece of criticism against the beloved company. You see in China, when searching on google they expell severall searchresults that affend the chinese government. Google in China, for example, doesn't contain any info on the massacre of 1989 or the occupation of Tibet.

Free information and Dont be Evil, my ass.

Do you realize Blogger is owned by Google?

Secondly, I don't see why you're mad at Google. Shouldn't we be mad at China? Aren't they the ones censoring? Are you mad at CNN for not cussing? Companies have to follow the rules or they don't get to do play. If you have a problem with the rules, attack them, not the players.
