Google- do no evil, just let others do evil

Google is one of the best search engines on the internet, producing not only search results, but a browser, soon an OS (Operating System), the Nexus One smart phone, a phone operating system, and so much more. Take especial note of its Custom Search Engine facilities, they are largely unique and useful.

Google's policy is don't be evil, but evil tends to differ per market they operate in, and certainly seems to be a Google judgement call, with many criticising it for both search suggestions, and for company involvement in politics.

Google tends to seem to believe that the web democracy should decide which results are on the top, although space can be bought with advertisements in the advertisements sections.

Google provides about 60% of online advertising, meaning that what they advertise affects the world. They have been severely criticized from all sides on the ads they allow and do not allow, some of them hateful and terrible in nature, some encouraging what many governments consider undesirable behaviour. Further, Google adverts often appear in some anti-virus programs, so as to make the entire page seem dangerous, as the ad page linked to has been accused of dangerous activity.

If one wants to find the views of extremists, search for them on Google. If one wants to find their opponents, Google is also available.

Google is a search engine, and unlike Yahoo, not a web directory program. It generally believes in non-interference with web results, much as some environmentalists will not interfere with the life-cycle of animals.

If I want information on a topic i often either use Google or a custom search engine using a Google engine.

I disagree with much of what Google does and says, but they do tend to stand up for what they believe in, and for their own bottom... line.

I especially disagree with their pro-abortion adverts etc, in search results and on web-pages, and with their links to seeming hate sites, in advertisements.

Google is controversial, but likely the most or one of the most effective ITC companies in the world. I extensively use and like many of their services!
