It would be so awesome if out of the blue Apple, Twitter, or Facebook said "Oh by the way, this is our new search engine -------.com." BOOM! -10% Google US search market share loss in one day. That is the sort of thing that I day dream about.
I will forever be cheering on the downfall and demise of Google "only do pure evil". They are actually attempting to turn their search results into a 10 channel television set. "On the Wikipedia channel from 10:00pm - 10:01pm PST we'll teach you the meaning of the term Toast". I'd love to see the size of Wikipedia's traffic drop the day that they stopped being foisted on to the world via Google. That garbage heap of a website would be lucky to retain 5% of it's current traffic volume (it would probably be 2% for About.com and eHow).
When I hear Sergey Brin say things like "Isnít knowledge always good, and certainly always better than ignorance?" I throw up in my mouth. These guys are more anti-information than Joseph Stalin was.
Cheers to the -8.26% GOOG stock collapse today. I even picked up that info on Bing.com. I know I'll sleep like a baby tonight.
