    I thought the video was really well done, if not just a bit over the top… but am I the only one who sees the irony in posting it using youtube? There are a host of other free video hosting sites out there that are not owned by google!

    Not only the posting on youtube is a bit ironic, but if you look at the source of the page you see that he is using google analytics as well……If google is so evil why use all their services?

    For most things there are a host of good alternatives available (statcounter, zippyvideos, etc etc etc)

    I do not care what services anyone uses or what his or her personal opinions about anything are but putting up an active campaign against a corporation but still using a lot of their services is just a bit hypocritical imho.

    Just my $0.02

    Yeah, there certainly are a lot of Google Alternatives.

    I try to use as many Google services as possible, but when it comes to site statistics, I use as many as I can. If/when MSN comes out with their analytics program, I’ll probably replace google’s but until then…

    btw, it is a good movie 🙂 I did enjoy it.

    When MSN comes out with something like that i bet there will be millions of people complaining about MS doing that for the same reasons as you are telling that google ‘might’ be doing 😉

    What I do not understand is that when it comes to google everyone seems to immediately find everything great and wonderful and when MS does something it is immediately a threat and evil and monopolistic and ….. so on.

    Google seems not to be able to do anything wrong and MS seems not to be able to do anything right.


    time for bed now 🙂

    surley any emailing service or ISP could read your email if they wanted too, just because the text in an email is scanned doesn’t mean it’s being stored anywhere.

    I do not know how to contact you

    but google Blogger has blocked my blog

    when you go to my site and scroll down… you will see everything has been blackened and you are not able to click on links on the original posts…

    i think it is due to my recent posts (especially) and the solution i realized for world peace (even though it aint a new solution)

    60s movement + Nonviolent Movement + 1 God Alone =
    Love + Nonviolence + 1 God Alone =

    so i posted this on my technorati WTF about Free speech, technorati, facebook and now google tryin to block my words…

    One thing this guy is wrong about: Pagerank is for determining link popularity not relevancy. A page’s rank is a number between 1 and 10, that has nothing to do with search term relevancy.
