Is it just me or is google reallllly starting to grow. I mean lately, skype, google talk, video, youtube, now broadband? They are turning into a walmart. I must say though, all of their ideas are very well thought out and I like all their tools.Thanks for the link, I will read about it. :-)

edit: ROFL this post is golden now that I have read it. :rofl:

I had my hopes up that it would be a skype pc-to-telephone type deal where they snag you with free stuff but then start charging later. :frown:

Oh, and did you hear about Mozilla suing MS for the use of tabs?

You see a couple of news items like this on /. and you know what's it all about even before reading the article.
