Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

In all of your complaints against them, I see one instance of privacy oversight (Google Buzz), and one actual instance where they crossed a line (Wifi incident). Oh, and I have a hard time getting flustered over another zombie cookie implementation. For the rest of it, it seems that you just don't like the revenue model. As an end user, they sell their services for information. If you'd rather pay for email and search services with cash, find another service.

Ah. I see how it works now. Google indexes every single public tidbit of information about someone. But then they punish you if you actually use their search engine to find it and use it in a report. Seems a bit hypocritical of them if you ask me.
Then I would disagree if I asked you. CNet has a huge following, and by them shoving Schmidt's personal information into the spotlight was an abuse of their power. I'd expect and support similar actions if Slashdot did the same to Steve Balmer.
