Economist: Who’s afraid of Google:
On antitrust, […] it has yet to use its dominance in one market to muscle into others in the way Microsoft did.
That’s not true at all: just ask Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Kiko, 30boxes, and MapQuest.
And that’s just when Google has succeeded. They’ve certainly attempted others, such as PayPal and Craigslist.
Nerds love Google and hate Microsoft. When Microsoft does it, it’s an evil illegal monopoly. When Google does it, it’s “innovation.” Sound familiar?
