With Google that would almost require to stop patronizing the Internet given that almost all of their revenue comes from PPC advertisements on other people’s web pages and servers advertising yet other people’s companies.

At it’s heart Google is an advertisement firm using their search engine to drive placement of those adverts.

Of course it is. Nevertheless, it’s a business, not a sovereign country. Just say no! And if you really believe they “own” the WWW, then I guess you *will* have to stop using the ‘net to strangle them. I don’t believe that myself, but YMMV.

I really don’t think Google is either evil or unstoppable. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

When they release GoogleArmy, then I’ll worry.

Meanwhile, use Bing, a rather good search engine developed by a small startup firm called Microsoft Corporation. They could use your support as they struggle to establish themselves in a space dominated by Google. :-)

D, “At its heart” is sorta flabby. At its inception?? Ok. All long ago and far away. So can “they” run a mok a bit? Mmm, Step, Step,
