PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There are various trains of thought regarding Apple suing HTC, and one of them is that Apple feels threatened by Android's rise in popularity. Some laughed this away, but when you look at recent statistics regarding mobile web usage, it becomes pretty clear Apple has every reason to feel threatened by Google's mobile operating system.

It's all from a philosophical point of view. A company wants to give you as little as possible, for as much of your money as possible. You want to get as much as possible from a company, while paying as little as possible for it.

This means that from a consumer's point of view, companies are evil, because they're trying to accomplish the exact opposite of our own desire.

Of course, the term "evil" is exaggerating, but I use it because of Google's "Don't be evil" thing. I should remember to use quotes.


Google doesn't seem to match your definition of evil. I get a lot of use from their products for *no* money. I'm not saying that Google isn't "evil" to some degree, but your definition of evil seems flawed.

For advertising companies such as Google, you are not the customer; you are the product. Their actual customers are the advertisers.
