Google quietly returns to playground to play with News.com

Google Ends Boycott of News.com

This is a follow up to my blog posting: Google is mad at CNet and it’s talking its ball and going home from August 9th, 2005. News.com is part of CNet.com.

When you’re as popular and powerful as Google is, sometimes people aren’t going to say nice things about your company. From what I understand, the article was accurately portraying the ability to find out infomation about Schmidt including some information that he wishes would remain private. I don’t understand why Google reacted the way it did.

With hard drives getting bigger, computers getting more powerful, the internet growing larger, and search engines indexing more and more, some information that was obscure before will be revealed.

This may, someday, impede our personal freedoms.
