Fellow TLUGger Ion Mudreac pointed me to Robert X. Cringley's latest "i, cringley" column, entitled "Google-Mart". While I admit to suspecting at times that Cringley is a bit too fond of the sound of his own voice, he often makes sense, and this column is a stellar example of a damned clever bit of reasoning. Time will tell if he is right.
I for one would welcome our new Google overlords. I like a company that has made bucketloads of money by giving consumers what they want, and you've gotta love their motto: "Don't be evil."
