Google A recent Google acquisition of DoubleClick for a whopping USD 3.1 billion has turned many heads. The recent past certainly does not fit into Google's traditional non-aggressive attitude towards acquisitions for monopoly in the market.

However evil Google is (or isn't), It is better to have the diversity/competition of 2 evil companies, rather than just Microsoft(owns live.com) being one arch-evil company.
