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.

I believe this is at least the 4th rogue employee (Canadian drug ads, Olympic ads, chrome pay-per-post ads, Kenyon database stealing) and/or the 50th awe-shucks "mistake" (wifi data collection, Buzz, etc.) mucking things up for the evil-slaying Google, and the excuses keep a-coming...
