I really wish the search engine world (Google, Bing, Yahoo) was represented proportionally more like the video game world (Xbox, PS, Nintendo). A monopoly like Google can just steam roll over it's customers with any changes (Penguin, Panda). Microsoft at E3 last week announced that the new Xbox was to have very strict DRM and the system had to be connected to the internet every 24 hours. Gamers didn't like that especially since Sony's new PS4 wasn't nearly as strict. Afraid about loosing customers Microsoft a few days ago reversed their decisions to keep their fan base happy.
I realize this is not a apples to apples comparison but it shows that competition is good for consumers.
