And all of US consumers will be better off -- um... except that isn't how it works.
Google's path of destruction extends beyond the American borders -- it's not just about how their actions are or are not affecting American consumers.
They recently opened shop here in Canada as web developers -- giving away free websites to Canadian businesses. Of course it's so they can sell them on AdWords afterward. Here's the link to the Google site promoting it, it's worth watching the video on the front page to to see how utterly stupid and unprofessional that person in the video appears. [gybo.ca...] -- what makes matters even worst is they have managed to get some of Canada's most respected corporations in their back pocket to help them destroy small business people like me who are trying to earn an honest day's wages.
That is a direct hit on me as a small web development business. How am I supposed to compete with a FREE. It's sickening, and whatever the outcome of this "investigation" down the road -- it will not be enough to compensate the worldwide damage Google is doing.
Google is bad to the bone and needs to be reeled in but I don't have hope of that happening because really what is the FTC and Justice Department going to accomplish as long as there is backroom handshaking with the CIA.
