Top 10 Reasons to Hate Google

The Motley Fool has a good article on the top 10 reasons why he hates google

here are points 4 and 5

4. Grab your tinfoil hat. In the words of Kurt Cobain, “Just because you’re paranoid don’t mean they’re not after you.” When the U.S. government demanded Google’s search results, many of us had probably been conveniently ignoring the fact that Google stores up our data in the first place. Of course, Google says that only machines, not humans, scan your data, and that’s only so Google can serve up targeted ads. But still, the idea that Google’s got a repository of what you search for — not to mention what you say and do by way of Gmail, Google Calendar, and the like — makes me wonder whether people might start worrying about what could happen if all of that data fell into the wrong hands.

5. Don’t bother rolling up your pant legs. For a sustainable competitive advantage, a company needs a deep moat to ward off encroaching competitors. But Google’s moat is only ankle-deep. Anybody could get into the game, and its competitors are established names with plenty of cash and resources to do battle. They’re doing just that.
