    Pretty eye-opening and not shocking in the least. This has nothing to do with fairness or monopolies and is all about lawyers trying to create lawsuits out of thin air in the hopes of getting their 30% chunk of the settlements Google almost always pays. The thing that scares me most, is that the people in Washington are just stupid enough to actually listen to these lobbyists.

    So Kayak/Fairsearch … who’s stopping you from building your own search engine? Oh, I see … it’s not fair because that would take a considerable investment of your time, money and talent and you feel you would never be competent enough to compete with Google. It’s only fair that they should “share the wealth,” so to speak, by leaving your market alone. If you can’t beat ’em, sue ’em! Meanwhile, Google creates new ways to collect fees from website owners to help pay for all of these frivolous lawsuits.

    What the heck is wrong with this country these days?

    Google never steals ideas? Always innovating? Like igoogle? beat yahoo’s version into oblivion and then once they own the niche dump it because it isn’t making you as much money as your other products, leaving millions of users in the learch. You are right what the heck is wrong with this country?

    For whatever it’s worth, when I think airplanes, I think Southwest. When I think trains, I think Amtrak or Metro North. When I think hotels, I think hotels.com or TripAdvisor.

    Microsoft Works users were also millions. Just like gramophone users.

    I hope you still can find Ford T parts on craigslist.
