Google: ‘We are not a threat’

aobadfiohvdafGoogle is feeling really uncomfortable, because of the increasing attention of the American authorities. The company tries to convince journalists, politicians and publishers of its innocence. American supervisors started various studies at Google.

Painful things are point of discussion, for example the role of manager Eric Schmidt in the administration of Apple, supposed appointments about personnel management and a proposed agreement with book publishers concerning Google Books. The problems are all about the monopolistic side of the search engine. But.. Google says it does not form a threat to the world. Instead of a dominant search engine is Google an usual part of a large internet ecosystem, it claims.

Although the name ‘Google’ became a verb to descrive searching on the internet, Google claims it has competition of businesses as Amazon and Ebay. At the internet advertisement market, the business has the grand piece of that cake. 30% is for Google, and that’s far to much.

Google wants to have our information

Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

The infamous Google mission statement is written above. We think it is just not anymore what we want Google must do. Google is already demanding individuals to share music listening history with Google. What is Google thinking? Why should we let them track, record, analyze, manipulate, archive and exploit our personal music listening habits? Google’s actions are far from innocent and always profit driven. Remember people: Google is a company, not a non-profit love-sharing organisation.
