Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

Not true. I've worked in both customer service and engineering in a very very large company and we cared greatly about the customer.

And yet Google shuts down Google Reader because 10 million users is not enough for them. While feedly and newsblur are glad to have even 1 million users.

That is why _on average_ big companies don't care about the customer.
