The "do no evil" is how about Google deal with its users, not with the competition, in this case IPhone from Apple.
Who doesn't remember that Christmas special? Can't be worse than that.
Those people really lack diplomacy, freedom is not seem the same way everywhere in the world which makes the use of that word to have different meanings.
I don't see the US supporting the freedom in the internet to selling illegal drugs, sending spam, prostitution, DMCA,
Likewise is totally acceptable that other countries impose restrictions to Internet use where there is concern to that community, like to pornography until issues of age checking and privacy are addressed.
Surely China's censorship is outrageous but US needs to make a point: What exactly are you talking about? How that compares to others country sovereignty and general laws?

The weak explanation seems to be a great exercise in circular logic "Had we failed to update the service automatically, users would not have been able to successfully check for updates and, in turn, users would not have had updates installed automatically or received expected notifications." News.com is reporting that all of the updated files on both XP and Vista appears to be in windows update itself. This is information that was independently uncovered by users and still not released by Microsoft.
More interestingly could this be construed as a hacking of Windows users' systems? Does the EULA specify that Microsoft has the right to silently break into my machine, change components of the operating system and ignore any settings that explicitly prohibit this sort of behavior? Seems like a good argument could be made for Microsoft breaking into a system without the users' permission."
