Google Why does Google get so much credit in the technology industry? Why, despite the company's many obvious failings, do many geeks and enthusiasts still hold a somewhat positive view on the all-knowing technology giant? A specific talk at Google I/O this week provides the answer.

So Google wants to know which ads you might click. Apple and Microsoft want to know that too, for iAds and whateverMSads.

BUT Google is better than those two in regards to:

1. Software patents
2. FOSS



On 1: It has its own model for revenue if you don't mind ads shoved down your throat 24/7.

On 2: Cause Google launched the initiative to turn KHTML into a working browser embraced by the entire world, all on their own, right?
