    here is the youtube video - youtubedotcom/watch?v=JSHf4g-hsmM

    This was produce by "the wall street journal". i don't know if this is true but FTC have allegation over google about "web-search ad dominance". maybe this google monopoly will start to spread all over the internet like wild fire and maybe on national tv.

    Read about this weeks ago...looks like Larry Page is sweating it out in court...I swear to god the worst thing that could have happened to Google is him as CEO.

    Well lets be honest, it is a monopoly, and there's no way to even pretend it's a good thing for the consumer to have search supplied by hte largest online ad-vendor, hell Page said as much himself back in the day!

    BUT given that Google is in bed with the NSA, willing to roll over and forget its principles and generally seems to be golden (In that some dickhead always springs up to say "It's not a monopoly, if you don't like it use a different search engine") I doubt this will result in anything more than a slap on the wrist and a token fine.

    I really can't stop laughing. I was trying to do more research on that video. I just used the keywords "FTC Readies Antitrust Case Against Case" and google took me to a video where the lady was teaching how to wear Plum makeup.

    That happens pretty much ANYTIME you try to search for criticism of google using google. In my experience usually the top two positions are Google books on those sorts of searches :D
