Speaking of Yahoo and Google and killing industries....
1. Who is honestly shocked that Google Desktop is basically a spy intent on knowing and collecting everything about you?
How's that for disrespecting your users?
Is this the kind of treatment users can expect whenever thier beloved little online tool gets bought up by one of the big guys?
Really, I don't think these are quite industry killers, but as people become more sophisticated about technology and communication how much longer will companies be able to get away with these sorts of abuses?
