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.

"They usually don't break law but do it if they can get away with it. They do amoral acts if they can get away with it. They would do anything if they can get away with it and of course the more profit the better."

Actually, "they" dont do anything. People do amoral acts, people will do anything they can if they can get away with it and people are the ones that will profit at any cost. Saying that it's the corporations that does this is just a convenient way to shift the blame onto an anonymous entity and make yourself not feel guilty.
