I think they’re running out of routes except for the route labeled "desperation this way ---> FTC"

The FTC didn’t do much about the Y! paid inclusion program did they? My cynical self is doubtful that they’d look at google with any close scrutiny either, its a bit of a shame that Google have decided to jump all over this as it simply re-ignites  that tired old debate but i guess at the same time from their POV they have to say something, especially as the story appeared on such a high profile space as techcrunch. Popcorn time? :)

I must admit that he seems to be TOTALY! mising the point and is ranting on about paid links - the real danger from the FTC is the near monolpoly they have in search and the stupid G/Y deal was  just a big red light saying please regulate me now

Well, one point that really stands out is that people seem totally unaware of the way Google funds Firefox.Maybe Google should have to explain the actions that you take, like searching in the search box or URL box that they are making a charitable contribution on your part to the Mozilla Foundation.Something to the affect: Google apreciates your use of the Firefox web browser’s search function and are making a charitable contribution on your behalf.I like giving, why wont Google or Mozilla at least thank me?
