    Google.com – A Monopoly That Has Teeth?

    The NY Times has an interesting article on how Google has defunded one group of researchers who were critical of Google's virtual monopoly:

    “Google is very aggressive in throwing its money around Washington and Brussels, and then pulling the strings,” Mr. Lynn said. “People are so afraid of Google now.”


    Google basically shot the messenger. Google appears to be earning a reputation that is closer to being evil than not.
