    The principe behind it is simple:
    You enter a hostname that exists -> everything works as it should
    You make a typo or the hostname doesn't exist or is blocked by google -> you are redirected to the google frontpage and receive advertisements


    The worst of it: If people really switch to google dns (as example because their ISPs make them use that dns to spare money) then google will not only be able to block your black hat sites from the google index.
    They will be able to block those sites from all search engines including the URL bar of the browser. + free advertisement for google

    If it becomes widely adopted, they'll have a lot more information about the popularity of sites based on how many DNS calls are made to a particular domain, subdomain, etc. A lot can be gathered with access to that kind of information.

    Didnt the Competition Commission Stop them from Buying a controlling stake in Facebook or something, stating that they would control To much internet user personal information. Something like that.

    Now they will do it in a BH way and catch the world off guard, and even make every body think that they are doing them a favor.... Right up to the point where
    the Sh!t hit the fan and it is to late to turn around

    People need to start some kind of Google Scare circulating, or his thing will become a massive pain for sure...and Big G will dominate all.

    A few PR release and stuff?
