Google It really hasn't been Google's week. First the entire internet exploded because of some uninteresting nonsense regarding social networking (really internet?), but today something happened that's actually a bad thing and worth talking about: in Kenya, Google has been caught accessing the databases of a competing business, and offering Google's own product to the people in the database. Google has already apologised, and is currently investigating the matter.

They're patent trolls. Heck, they're software patent trolls. Considering software patents are by far the biggest threat to the technology industry I hold so dearly, it's pretty easy to see why I believe Apple and Microsoft are evil - especially since they do it beneath this thin veil of innovationjobsstealingmurica many people are taken in by.

I've only said this like a billion times, but alas.
