And I have to agree. Further, Google’s response to the backlash today stating the “facts” about their proposal with Verizon sort of pisses me off.
Instead, Google’s intentions are much more transparent: greed. Greed also tends to have a negative connotation, but I’m of the Gordon Gekko mentality that “greed works.” It’s what drives this country. And as a public company, whether we want to admit it or not, it’s what drives Google.
This is what I have been saying all along Google is getting greed. I do disagree with Siegler with respects to Google being ‘evil’ – no they are not a Bond villain – but by their own definition they seem to be teetering on the edge of evility (is that a word?).
