Google It really hasn't been Google's week. First the entire internet exploded because of some uninteresting nonsense regarding social networking (really internet?), but today something happened that's actually a bad thing and worth talking about: in Kenya, Google has been caught accessing the databases of a competing business, and offering Google's own product to the people in the database. Google has already apologised, and is currently investigating the matter.

Oh, and for Google "Investigating the matter" is translated into:

"And who the hell should we blame now? or Version Control System? or a third party contractor? ".

I think Google is going to conclude that this is totally a personal misbehavior of the employee, hence it absolutely has nothing to do with Google.
