Google dominating

Depends on what you call dominating I refuse to use something from google beside their searchengine for the simple reason that they collect your personal information as stated in the TOS of most of their products and I'm not aware of any person who does uses other products of google.So if you only reffer to their searchengine then yes I think they are dominating.Ruud Hermans

Microsoft seem happy with people having to buy their products through their (seemingly to the public) monopoly on operating systems for PC's, and then having to buy Office, having to cope with IE etc. Of course there are better alternatives, but the average computer user doesn't know better, and keep using mediocre products. Google is much like Microsoft, only they seem to actually strive to make good products.I use Google search (although I may use other search engines from time to time), Gmail (anyone interested in an invite, I have like 99 or something, just PM me), Google Earth (brilliant program) and Gmail Notifier. Tried Googlepages (doesn't work in Opera, no good), but I prefer to code my own websites anyway. I still think Googlepages is a much better alternative than pages like geocities/yahoo/piczo, as it results in aesthetically prettier pages. Google Video is cool, but YouTube is a lot bigger and has more videos...

Wow, you must really like AOM then, if you can call yourself a MS Fan because of that and despite everything else Microsoft has done that is crappy...

That may be so, but it wouldn't hurt them to keep their products up to date. :)Anyway, we're straying off topic. I believe we're discussing Google.

Indeed, but our points are well interesting for users to read and the facts on both of the sides, surely you must be on our side. ( SH )

@Jonas...do you like Gmail? I found it clumsy and looks awful. I prefer Yahoo mail , especially their new AJAX interface....looks and acts just like Outlook.@eguru...I use search and am considering an AdWords campaign. I will never use AdSense again. Google failed to let their AdSense promoters know about a change they made in November that crippled any hopes of make a decent amount of cash from your sites ever again.I am currently persueing some other Affiliate advertising options...if you are interested I can send you the articles that talk about this. I saved some copies cuz the site said they are going to stop distributing them soon.

well i am not an supporter of google, but ypn is good enough but accepts only us people and other programs in the net approve on traffic and status of your site.Our website was accepted since it had huge traffic of about 5000 / per day by many publishers, but we did not prefer as most of them were scams.

@aspnetguy,G-Mail filters e-mails on subjects, mails that contain certain combinations of words are intercepted by the google team.--- as far as I have been told.Beside that the TOS claim google the right to read your mail when they feel like it. (a reason can allway's be thought of with those privacy policies).Ruud Hermans

Well, I just have my mails forwarded to Outlook anyway, so the GUI don't bother me... :)

Yeah, but with one copy in my google inbox, it's still accessible, I just don't have to work with the GUI on a regular basis...

There was an interesting article some time back about Microsoft has started losing its "Innovation" and is mainly trying to compete with its rivals. MS is launching "zune" similar to ipod and doing other stuff which others have already done. this just shows MS has bad feeling about their dropping down in market...
