MR Fewkes and Web_speed: Amen! :)
Would be interesting if they could break Adwords, adsense & Google up like they did Banks and Investment firms in the 70's and telecoms in the 90's. All the employees swear they don't have access to each others departments, but SOMEONE high up must and is coordinating the compartments.
I'm peeved too with all the highest ranked dictionary sites not putting at least part of the definition in the description like they used to. Makes you have to actually CLICK on the link to get an inkling ;). Just saying, cause it really slows down your search time when you're Borging on trivia.
Overall, I think, like previously alluded, G is trying to slowly replace EVERYTHING on the net with their own content, then they don't need to share the adsense revenue. It started with maps, then ads, then all the images which they steal and grudgingly let people see where they come from, then news, now local, then as a last resort access to everyone elses content which they might have missed replacing yet, just as a sideline. By Dec 2012 they intend to control EVERYTHING, EVERYONE sees on the internet, and maybe TV, to be the all in all. Bwa-ha-ha! :)
