Google is evil
I just started downloading Google API, when i noticed that it's 666kb.
But that's not only thing i wanted to discuss...
Have you noticed that Google is becoming internet? In few years, we won't need other sites. Google will be The Internet. They are making their alternatives for everything. There was hotmail, the Google came and took half of it's users. PayPal is standard for online transactions, but now Google has checkouts. Have you seen Google Analytics?
It's better than all free hit counters and all commercial counters.
They also want to make all books and movies available on internet.
I could continue talking this stuff for every Google's service, but they are faster. They are demons from hell .
We will be their slaves; we'll use Google pages to host our site, put google ads on them, we'll use analytics to track our site, gmail for support, checkouts for business, ...
They'll conquer the web.
What do you think about all this?

Just because you use one source for services does not make them evil.

I think something along the lines of "All your base are belong to us " comes to mind

We are Google. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. We will assimilate you.

...and keep coming with new, completely useless features like integrated video search, haxx0r google, that little menu when one clicks "more" etc. etc.

Google is definitely growing uncomfortably large, but such is the modern buisiness way. Nobody wants to do one thing and do it well anymore. No longer are companies a manufacturer of a product, now they're selling a way of life.

Speaking of Analytics and assimultion, does anyone have invites?

I don't think you can give out invitations for it - at least, I can't

In what way is it uncomfortable? Being large does not make one uncomfortable. Being monopolistic is not evil. Doing something can make one uncomfortable and that thing can be evil but size of the company does not matter. I fail to see anything evil or uncomfortable with anything Google has done so far.

Wait until they come out with GoogleOS (I hear they're actually making it now!)

You hear lots of things on the intraweb. I don't think they are working on an OS though there may be some sort of thing to tie all their web apps together somehow.

So wait... Google is a series of tubes?! I though it was a truck...
Internally, Google does use a custom OS (actually several, mostly different distros of Linux). Supposedly, the main OS is a version of Ubuntu that they call "GooBuntu", and the rumor mill was churning earlier this year, that Google was in pre-release setps. However, Google has said they have no plans of releasing it to the public, nor as a general distribution. Linkage

I can't understand how Google is such a large enemy to M$ if it doesn't even make operating systems... surely that's what I'd think M$'s flagship product is, and don't tell me the heat is due to competition between their search engines!
