Remember kids -- Google took the solemn pinky oath to Not Be Evil, so the removal of YouTube-MP3.com from their search results is for your own good. And remember, Youtube is staunchly against copyright violation and has never violated any copyright or made copyrighted media available to unauthorized parties -- ever.

RTFA, Google did not censor anyone here.

I do not have an Android tablet (yet), but I am pretty sure they usually identify themselves as an iPad (So admins don't have to make 50,000 profiles) or a Desktop (Because an android can actually render a desktop version of a page properly), dramatically skewing these results. Not to mention that 3rd party browsers can report themselves as whatever the hell they want, while an iOS device has no option.

I think that Xbox is the best thing that happened to PlayStation. In the real world, there is nothing like a little competition, especially direct competition. From Wikipedia's article on competition: "Merriam-Webster defines competition in business as 'the effort of two or more parties acting independently to secure the business of a third party by offering the most favorable terms.' Seen as the pillar of capitalism in that it may stimulate innovation, encourage efficiency, or drive down prices, competition is touted as the foundation upon which capitalism is justified."

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
