We can help you with that. Start a thread "I love Google" and we'll have a long conversation about the virtues of not being evil.

*LOL* That would be cocky and undeserved, don't you think?

Yes, I do ;-) As much as I love Google, and I *do* think this company has a coolness value and a branded friendliness near the top of the web, I believe these people are heading for serious problems with sticking to their motto: "Don't be evil".

It's a good motto, I like it and I like Google, but I am thinking of how long they will be able to be true to their ideals, now that they are connecting with Sun, taking over more and more companies and launching new enterprises.

Now that the "fight on the beaches" against Microsoft has been declared, I am going to watch closely to see what happens.

What preoccupies me the most is perhaps not the outcome of the fight - I doubt neither will win - but the strategy of the people at Google.

Will they stick to their motto which suggests that you cannot fight evil with evil? Will they stick to fighting evil with good?

Or will they - or have they? - already become a company as companies are most?*

Looks nice! I don't get the acronym though. Eye you are on? Eye euron? Iuron?
