Meh, i'm fine with google and how they've run their corporation thus far. After all, one of the motto's is "Don't be evil." Hell, they even backed out of China.

They're back in China because they lost so much cash on it.

Yes, but in going back they made no concessions. They're still not censoring and refuse to acquiesce to the demands of censorship from the Chinese government. They're still operating without censoring a darn thing, so they still have that ethical high ground that makes them one of the more kindly looked upon corporations.

If they put importing tools and such into whatever Google make, then I can see it working.
You can't bring people to social networking sites, you have to bring the sites to the people.
