Google The web is already aflame with Google's accusation that Bing is stealing its search results. Google created code to manually rank certain bogus search terms, and ten created mock web pages as the top search results for these bogus terms. It turned out that Bing would list the exact same mock web pages as its top search result for these bogus terms. Google is unhappy with it, but in all honesty - since when is it wrong to copy in the computer business?

Google really got on my bad side when they admitted publicly that they would not hesitate to give any data collected from their users' search habits to government agencies,

I feel the same way about retail shops. I can't stand the thought of committing a crime inside of Walmart and knowing that they would cooperate with the damn government in order to catch me. Don't they care about my privacy? Any company that helps the government catch criminals is just not cool in my book.
