Isn't it all a bit frightening this power that Google is developing?
IMO it's absolutely terrifying. BMW and their design/marketing folks were reckless and pretty daft to do what they did, and certainly deserve the penalty. But until the competition, whether Y or MS or (preferably) some new player altogether, provide a real alternative we're stuck with an effectively monopolistic situation. In the long run a solution to that problem that may need government intervention.
