Google's ability to tell you the truth? You have got to be kidding me. Google is more than willing to twist the "truth" to suit its purposes.
For example, Google modifies search results to put its services ahead of competitors, despite assurances to congress it would do no such thing.
Google claimed they only decided to create Android to prevent us from a "dystopian" iPhone only future, despite the fact that they had been developing Android before the iPhone was released.
Google claims to have not copied the iPhone or infringed on its patents, despite the interface for Android doing a complete 180 after they saw the iPhone.
Google claims to be all about open and standards, yet it is propping up the 100% proprietary Flash format by including it in Chrome.
Google claims to be all about open yet the one product where it makes all its money, Search, is completely closed source and proprietary.
Google claims its against Chinese censorship but was more than willing to play along with Beijings rules until someone in the gov't tried to hack into their system. It wasn't noble principle, but self interest that promoted their withdrawal from China.
Google claimed that they were accidentally recording and storing wifi data picked up via their street view vehicles, yet that data was intentionally throwing out encrypted data and only storing that which might be useful to them.
Google's CEO sat on Apple's board for years, despite the fact that his company was secretly working on a competing product, all the while gathering information on his competitor.
Raw competition? You think that using profits from one division to prop up a free program in another division designed to undercut competitors completely on price is fair competition? (Google Search profits powering Google ability to give Android away for free). Because if you do Microsoft would like to remind you about Internet Explorer.
Google wants whats best for Google, and whats best for Google is continuing to use you and me, and our information, to sell more ads.
Google's opponents are looking to protect THEIR investments of time and money that Google is using illegally in some cases, they have a long history of doing what they want and asking for forgiveness later. If Google's opponents can't compete why is Bing gaining ground in search? Why are Android tablets selling worse than some of the biggest flops in video game history (the Nintendo VirtualBoy) while the iPad continues to sell like hotcakes? Why is the iPhone still the most profitable, liked device, gaining ground again on Android now that Verizon users actually have a choice? Google has had one major successful product, Search, and some success with services, followed by a litany of failures like Buzz and Wave. It's no wonder Google is spewing propaganda instead of challenging the patents in the courts. It knows its going to lose thats why.
