I never used any AOL products for the same reason I will not use any Apple or Google ones. it is the same reason I do not ‘do’ Facebook or Twitter. They are all little more than thinly veiled spyware.
Two of the browsers listed are from companies that are some of Obama’s biggest funders and enablers.
One company (Google) aided and abetted the travesty we are seeing in Egypt. This company thinks nothing of cooperating with the Chinese government to suppress its people and is working with the Obama regime to do the same here. It should tell you something that the Europeans do not trust Google to protect its citizens privacy.
The other has Al Gore on its board of directors and the only thing that is more intrusive into you computer than Apple software is to go to the IRS website and click on that OK button when the box pops up telling you that if you wish to proceed further you give the government the right to basically ‘own’ your computer and everything on it.

How? Twitter was supposedly the big means of getting the word out. Besides which, do you really expect anyone to believe that Google had agents "on the inside" helping to bring Egypt down? Obama and his buddies are far more culpable than the mere existence of technology. Should Twitter have shut down all communication lines in and around Egypt?

You're referring here to Yahoo! and Microsoft. Google made a business decision to move into China to provide better services to the exploding Chinese IT market. They actually were pretty uncooperative with China's methods of doing business. For every 10 or so demands of censorship made on Google, they only implemented about 7. They kept trying to use their muscle as a big MNC to force Chinese officials to compromise. Yahoo! and MS censored anything and everything right away, no questions asked, even when it came to the truly Draconian measures China wanted implemented around the Olympics.

Net neutrality is dead. They failed.

Privacy laws are completely different in Europe than they are in the U.S. In the U.S., your data belongs to the company you use it with. In Europe, the laws state that your data belongs to you at all times. Don't like it? Don't bitch about Google and Facebook, bitch at the lawmakers.
