I guess it doesn't come as a shock to many of you, but many American companies receive funding from the upper level of government (including the Army) so that's why Schmidt wants to make them happy and he obeys them, otherwise be sure we'd see something dirty about Google.

Microsoft's not less dirty unluckily and they paid this guy in my opinion. They have employed so much viral marketing that they can make an advertisement page look like genuine opinions. Also iirc they were helped my MS on some things.

Unfortunately the way search engines are done it's very difficult we will see some new player which doesn't suck as much as the current ones, that's why they have an even deeper interest in keeping you with them and they do email services and such.
