Google becoming the largest 'human' directory?
They're becoming the biggest player period. And they've become bullies.
after the Texas Attorney General approached the company following complaints over search rankings.
Texas likes to make noise. I lived in the state for 25 years and watched it happen over and over again.
They don't have the guns, the ammunition, the manpower, the knowledge or even the awareness to take on google.
Google's legal staff is first rate. And they're internet versed. Most of Texas can't even tell you how to turn a computer on, much less reference any accurate legal standing. And that attorney generals office is no different.
They're after a big target. That's all. Google will throw paper at them for years though. Any possible solution or compensation these interests think they're going to receive aren't going to hit the bank for a long time, if they do at all.
