Google sometimes reminds me ...

J.P. MorganI don't have any particular angst about Google. In fact, i love the company's products and am a heavy user. Among my favs are Google search, Google Reader, Google Docs, Picasa, GrandCentral, Google tools for Webmasters, Google Analytics, and Google Apps for your domain. Wonderful stuff.

But sometimes the company does remind me of a railroad in the Robber Baron era.

Google (NSDQ: GOOG) accounted for more than six of 10 online searches in the United States in November, more than triple the amount of its closest rival Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO), a Web metrics firm said Tuesday.
Maybe, it's just me. Certainly Rockefeller, Carnegie, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Gould and others would be proud.
