do no evil, unless we risk losing market share!
Does anyone else not think that Google are committing the worst possible case of double-standards?
The commit no evil ethic is all well and good, except when it means that market share is likely to be impacted upon.
The BBC reports today that Google has filed court documents rejecting the call from Bush & Co. to request a weeks’ worth of user searches, citing an engineer’s time, constant algorithm changes and failure of a good reason for disclosure as the main reasons not to disclose the searches…but why are they standing up to the US Government when they have bent over and dropped their pants to the Chinese?
I presume that it is nothing to do with losing out on the 2nd largest internet market in the world is it?
