    *sigh* I suspect that Google may eventually come to the same legal scrutiny that Microsoft faced in the anti-trust cases– although on what exactly, and by what means, I don’t know.

       J.: I hope Google does. The most recent case, where Google hacked Apple Safari users, shows that governments are taking notice of their criminal behaviour. However, if you or I hacked millions of people (or however many is 8·72 per cent of the browsing public), we would be up for more than four hours’ earnings.

  4. […] on the system, I knew something was fishy.    Like Google’s false malware accusations—so serious that people have lost websites over them—I knew to take this one with a massive grain of salt. However, I didn’t have a choice: in order […]
