Google is a guide, not a gatekeeper.
Windows isn't a Gatekeeper, it's and Helping System.
A Browser isn't a gatekeeper, it's Translation device.
ISP isn't a gatekeeper, it's travel assistant.
LMAO! LMAO !
It takes a broadband connection to get onto the Internet, but consumers don’t need Google to access the web.
Nor do consumers need a browser, they can wget html text all day to find their information. Using a browser shouldn't give the browser company the right to direct your traffic based on their business needs "I.E. DOJ vs Microsoft, which led to Google gaining access to Internet Explorer default search" People didn't have to use Internet Explorer to get to the internet, BUT Internet Explorer commanded so much of the Market of Web users, it allowed Microsoft to triumph it's products, and parnters above all other, hurting competition "Hurting Google at the time"
Google serves more like a GPS on the Internet highway—not an on-ramp. It helps people get around, but it’s not necessary. If someone knows where he wants to go, he can navigate to those destinations directly
Internet Explorer serves more like a GPS "to" the Internet highway-not an on-ramp. It helps people to get around, but it's not necessary. if someone knows where he wants to go, he can navigate "using another browser" to those destination directly.
Search engines are popular and useful, but they’re just one of many ways to navigate the web.
"Browsers like Internet Explorer" are popular and useful, but they're just on of the many way to navigate the web.
It's so funny how attitudes change when the tables are turned.
Now I like Google, and have been in partnership with Google for many year, but I don't give 100% Always right cards to any company. On some points Google is doing a great job, and doing it fairly, but on the point of un-fairly manipulating the search results to favor it's profitability over real users wants, Google has been crossing the line, and need to be checked.
