The thesis seems to be that Google is more like Microsoft than many slashdotters and others would like to think. Google's biggest innovation was in finding the right business model. Hmm...sounds a bit like the claims that Microsoft's greatest innovation was in realizing the power of a standard operating system running on standard hardware.
It's interesting to see the mainstream press starting to pick up on Google as money-machine vs. Google as technology innovators.
