Google A recent Google acquisition of DoubleClick for a whopping USD 3.1 billion has turned many heads. The recent past certainly does not fit into Google's traditional non-aggressive attitude towards acquisitions for monopoly in the market. DoubleClick Inc., a spearhead in ad-serving, is only one of many companies acquired by Google. A comprehensive list can be seen here. Beside Google's acquisitions, this article will also explore some changes in Google's philosophy and potential threats to web community.

Oh yeah another attack on Google.... since when acquisition are "evil". I am pretty sure some of those were quite happy to get some of Google's money.

If you need a new search engine, google one, LOL.

PS: "perfect 10" story is outdated considering Supreme court rules that Google did not infringe copyright.
