I’d like to say I’m surprised, but I’m not. I now think that Google is becoming quite expert at both hypocrisy and “being evil”.
I’d like to say I cannot imagine how I missed this story (January 2nd) but, considering the topic, I can imagine just fine.
Looks like Google is (again) breaking their own rules and treating themselves differently and better the rest of the world.
Gee, wonder if that anti-trust effort is still going? Think I’ll fire this one off to my friend.
(See end of article for updates; yes, they admit to it, yes they insist it did not go/work “as intended”; heh, no, I suspect they didn’t intend to get caught with their pants down… again.)
