I think like someone pointed out recently in a different thread here (I think) is that there is the good and evil side of Google. The good being the side of Google trying to promote web technologies (e.g. Chrome, codecs without royalties, good search results) and then you have the evil aspect, the creepy bit Swanny007 mentioned, the invasion in to people's privacy, the advertising, etc.
I think this is a good time to mention that the DOJ are investigating Apple and Microsoft over enforcing MPEG'LA's patent trolling for licensing fees. Corporations are not wholly good or evil, it's a mix of the intentions of the people in charge.
