Google The Hypocrite
Lets face it Google has a good standing in the geek community. People rarely go after Google. I find it very Ironic that people hold double standards when it comes to Apple Vs Microsoft Vs Google. I like to look at them with a neutral eye. First Google got some really bad PR for ranking the lowest when it comes to piracy. Matt Cutts tryied to defend Google by pointing out the finger on other companies. Most people in the corporate world consider Google as a One Hit Wonder or Vapor ware. The only reason why Google is a top player in the market is because of Search and advertisement.
In its latest Hypocritical move Google has filed a Anti-Trust lawsuit against Microsoft so that they can load their crappy desktop search Program on Vista. Microsoft was good enough to agree with Google and decided to comply with Google’s request, but Google didn’t seem satisfied so they refiled the lawsuit. In the latest turn of event the Judge threw out the case.
A federal judge refused on Tuesday to rule on a last-minute Google antitrust complaint about Windows Vista’s desktop search, saying she trusted government attorneys who said they were already satisfied with Microsoft’s planned changes.
U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly said she would rely on the U.S. Department of Justice and state attorneys to alert her if any further action is needed to address antitrust allegations lodged on Monday by Google that the search function still won’t allow for adequate “user choice.”
“The plaintiffs, as far as I’m concerned, stand in the shoes of the consumer,” Kollar-Kotelly said at a periodic status conference here. She added that Google “is not a party to the case.”
Here’s what what hypocritical about Google.
- Why not go after Apple for the same thing, their spotlight works in the same way
- Google and Dell load Crapware on your computer
- Google hijacks users mistyped search inputs and shows them ads.
