we own the internet, so enough is enough, it's all ours
...they just grab what's lying around and integrate it into their main real estate, the Google search engine.
That shopping site didn't get traction. Looks like plan b is in play.
Google destroyed the analytics space by subsidizing the product with their adwords earnings. That's unfair competition and Google should be investigated for that. It is bold and foolish of Google to roll this out and challenge the world to sue them. This is the kind of arrogance that gave Microsoft a bad name, from which Microsoft has never recovered.
Google appears to be intent on frittering every bit of trust they have been granted by their users. Once that trust is lost Google will be stucked. Once the lawsuits and accusations start, the honeymoon is over for Google. When the public perceives Google, rightly or wrongly, as a money grubbing sleezebag like the oil companies, expect an exodus to another search engine.
Only one company is poised to step into that vacuum to offer a credible challenge. Bite of Apple?
