You gotta love those analogies! Also, the recipe for that lemonade from the fat 5 year old girl around the corner. She sells a lot man! :-)
Coke is not a good analogy sailorjwd, don't you think? They are not a monopoly and no business' existence depend on coke's tantrums as it's the case with Google. :-)
I don't think Google should be forced to hand over the algo but they sure need some regulation. They are just doing and undoing at will and that has to stop. They think they have their own set of laws. They shoot first and ask questions later. They violate laws, run over others and hope not to get sued; if they do, they have unlimited funds so not a worry there.
Look at the wi-fi deal and their favoritism for Google Base listings, youtube videos, google adwords at the top of the organic listings, and google maps. That has got to stop. The government need to sic their dogs on them but 911! They are being anti-competitive. With power comes responsibility. They could care less about that.
