Sooner or later people will perceive Google the way same Microsoft is
perceived by most. Some suggest it is the case already, but let's remember
that Google are Open Source-oriented. It appears to be /size/ that make them
evil as they soon become a monopoly that is difficult to compete with.
Microsoft's crimes: bundling of software, acquisition of small companies,
proprietary software, etc.
Google crimes: privacy is compromised, algorithms get misused, one product
relies on or benefits another. This leads to dependability.
My two cents...
