Between Google and Microsoft, Which is More Evil?

Ordinarily, I would admit that it is no contest–Microsoft is more evil than Google. But this web page, Google is more evil than Microsoft ever was, may change my mind. It lists several quotes from Eric Smith, former Google CEO, of which my favorite is:

“We don’t need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.”

The page then goes on to describe Google’s fall from grace, beginning with the ubiquitous “geek love” that nerds around the turn of the millenium showed the behemoth. Of course, Google’s motto, “don’t be evil” is duly mocked. Then the page describes Google’s descent into arrogance and arbitrary and punishing treatment of its users.

So, is Google more evil than Microsoft? Ahem, of course not ;-)
