Google is Not Evil , Not anymore

“Google is not evil” is (was) a guiding philosophy at google and it provided google a great strategic asset/resource in the world that was dismayed by the dotcom bust and torn by scandals at likes of WorldCom and Enron.

Of late I have been reading news which indicates that it’s asset is eroding as google seems to be putting that guiding principle to a back seat.

Today I tried to send an attachment(~ 4.5mb) through my gmail account, gmail did not allow me to do so stating that my attachment which was a .tgz contains a binary file and it is being restricted for security reasons. Now that is highly absurd and evil, who gave gmail the permission to read my attachments, a tgz file. The privacy page of gmail does not talk about scanning the attachments.

Some more Google and evil links here.

    well, looking from the other side is that Google is a corporation again. has to manage things it’s own way and why don’t you just enjoy the entertailment 🙂
