Google started to do, what MS used to do(and still doing) for a long time.

SallyF, I appreciate your humor. To strengthen the point, those of us who are trying to defend whatever principes we hold dear should see fairness as well as irony in this story. The irony has been covered. The fairness? Microsoft paid $2 Billion to a body that purports to defend the public from anti competitive practices. Shouldn't they apply that to all, including Google or does being popular and cool exempt them? Hey maybe it is about the money...

@SallyF Wow, nice troll - well done. Hopefully you can get a few more in before you have to go back to work @ the googleplex... "Biggest threat to the security world today" once I pick myself back up from ROFLMAO, I'm reminded that M$FT didn't commit genocide in Africa, start the revolutions in the mid-East, nor did it bomb the twin towers on 9/11. I think you need to get out more...

The guilty party (Microsoft) is loudly blaming their victim. Google demonstrated that Microsoft is monitoring computer users keyboard entries and Google search results and downloading them to Microsoft servers for storage and analysis. This snooping and data theft is criminal and federal investigators should shut Microsoft down and impound their servers for evidence. Microsoft arrogantly admitted they are stealing computer users data and Google's data and said they would "do anything it takes". Microsoft is the biggest threat to security in the world today. Microsoft's crimes should result in Ballmer and other executives taking a trip to federal prison.

It appears that Google is now so well entranched in the content domain that any attempt to access knowledge without checking in with google would be impossible. And we cant blame google for making money out of it, can we?

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
