Isn't the NY Times suposed to be a quality paper? The article is so full of siliness that it made my head exploid.
"Chrome products are given away, so they bring in no revenue for Google, and they donâ(TM)t even provide a better search or advertising experience for their users, the company admits. So why does Google even bother?"
- I can think of 100 reasons why Google Chrome generates money for Google like it has Google SE defaulted, pushing HTML 5 so people spend more time in online applications and thus more chance on clicking on a Google add, push Google Apps, ...
"But thanks to Microsoftâ(TM)s deep pockets and fierce screwball reputation, Bing has already accomplished its main purpose: reminding Google executives who theyâ(TM)re messing with."
- And keeping Google on it toes and creating even better search. Thats called competition and its better for consumers.
