Brett, this has specifically increased Google's earnings. It was one of the positive thing$ mentioned by analysts last earnings call. It drives me nuts, but then Google wants us to be logged on so they track every move we make. And of course they need to squeeze every last penny. Their expenses are increasing drastically and a stock collapse will have to mean more pay in cash for employees.
