Googles Defense Of AOL Deal Misses The Point

Google has posted a response to critics of the AOL deal on its official blog, but that response conveniently ignores most of the criticism levelled at the company. It's only a partial attempt to come clean.

Google says that the deal won't bias search results in favor of AOL, and that there won't be banner ads on the Google main page or search result pages. It adds "there will not be crazy, flashy, graphical doodads flying and popping up all over the Google site."

All that is well and good. But it ignores some of the most serious problems with the deal: Networking Pipeline | Blog | Google's Defense Of AOL Deal Misses The Point
