Say about Google what you want - and there's surely a lot of stuff to say - but it's this hacker-friendly attitude that earns this company its credits.


Hacker culture was [also] always about privacy, security and anonimity. Google isn't.
They pretend to be hacker-friendly just to make few more pennies out of the unsuspecting, clueless and naive newcomers.
