You know on the one hand I think its pretty funny to smack down an arrogant company. On the other hand, Google whose motto was once "First do no harm" is now becoming an arrogant company that like Microsoft thinks it knows whats best for you. To some degree, yes they do, they're quite convenient. And again on the other hand, it's taken some liberties with our privacy.
I'm not amused by this apparant Microsoft snub, not because they don't deserve it, but because Google is no longer in a morally superior position to do so.
