I am tired of Google trying to become a publisher (with content they own) instead of being the middleman (by referring people to other sites). Obviously they understand that owning content is much more profitable than being the middleman. Hence, they try to own as much content as possible:
- Google Maps - Google Streetview - GMail - Sidewiki - Google Search
They want to become a monopoly. I don't like monopolies.
Of those examples at least all of them provide some useful purpose except for sidewiki which appears to be nothing more than a glorified scraping service designed to be monetized with more ads.
I would bet that Sidewiki wouldn't get a good Adwords quality score. :)
