I guess it's easy to trash talk when you earn $3 billion through tax loop-holes

Google Uses Loophole to Dodge Corporate Taxes, According to Bloomberg Report - ABC News

"Over the last three years, Google has saved over $3 billion," said Bloomberg reporter Jesse Drucker, who broke the story.
Google, with its informal motto of "don't be evil," employs a strategy called the "Double Irish" to help it pay a tax rate of just 2.4 percent on overseas profits, according to Bloomberg. The corporate income tax rate in the U.S. is 35 percent.
ya know, Google has this sweetie pie marketing mixed with a swash buckling profit making attitude. They had potential to be trusted and blew it and now want to force all computer users into the Cloud - sacrificing all privacy and security

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

The big question I have:
Why the heck would it matter to me what some Search Engine Clown CEO thinks he has to share with the rest of the world.
I tested W7 for myself and I am convinced that it's the best windows ever made.

not just a search engine - they have been spying extensively

Google says Street View cars got email, passwords - Yahoo! News

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Inc acknowledged that a fleet of cars equipped with wireless equipment inadvertently collected emails and passwords of computer users in various countries, and said it was changing its privacy practices.

Google said it wants delete the data as soon as possible. Google announced the data collection snafu in May, but said at the time the information it collected was typically limited to "fragements" of data because the cars were always moving.

Since then, regulators in several of the more than 30 countries where the cars operated have inspected the data.

"It's clear from those inspections that while most of the data is fragmentary, in some instances entire emails and URLs were captured, as well as passwords," said Google Vice President of Engineering and Research Alan Eustace in a post on Google's blog on Friday.
Could this be a primer for a class action lawsuit?

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit SP1

Google already stores all searches by IP and tries to track you with analytics and hidden tracking cookies. Not to mention that I have an email address with them. If they think I am going to trust them with my family stuff and career data, they can think on. I won't be using Chrome OS ever.

Really? so why do all the adverts lead to something which has nothing to do with what im searching for?
