Google's motto "Don't be evil" should really be, "Don't be evil unless 
there's a lot of money in it".

I personally know a couple of people working for Google, and their famed 
geek-friendly work environment is not all it is cracked up to be either.

I think the IT world is better now than it was 10 years ago, because an 
industry dominated by three big, competing entities who hate each other 
(Microsoft, Apple, Google) is better than a monopoly of one (Microsoft). 
But we, the users and consumers, should never make the mistake of 
thinking that *any* of the three have our best interests at heart.
