    My central point is that if this was Microsoft doing it everyone would be up in arms


    True... but at the same time I don’t think Microsoft has ever come out and said that they will do no evil and have that be part of their core business... and unfortunately no matter what they say today, there is a popular history that they are nothing but evil and can do nothing good.

    I do always find it entertaining on places like /. where when Microsoft announces they are going to help police track down child pornographers or other noble deeds, they are blasted, but when Google announces it’s new legion of sales aliens... people cheer... just because they are not MSFT.
