At a recent press conference in New York, Google CEO Eric Schmidt and co-founder Sergey Brin fielded a lot of questions, on varying topics, from the media.
Here is one which caught my attention:
Q. Why won’t you be like Microsoft with regard to antitrust?
Schmidt: Many reasons. Culture, for one. Another reason is that majority of users are one click away from moving away from us. Third: If we went into an “evil room” and had an “evil light” shined on us, and we then behaved in an “evil way” we would be destroyed….There is a fundamental trust between Google and its users.”

What do you think? Or is, as some say, Google the new Microsoft?
