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.

  1. Google’s “do no harm” or whatever has one serious flaw. They think they can do no wrong because of who they are. Down with monopolies and those using their billions to destroy the earth. (check where one founder had a wedding and how many flew on private jets) They are not to be questioned, I guess.
