Google corporate: We've realized that the profit we get from superficially pretending to have values is no longer greater than the value we get otherwise.
When exactly did Google do good for the world? All they did was set their public motto to "Don't be evil" and apparently everyone just took them at their word? But at the core they're just an ad company disguised as a search engine which isn't exactly a winning combination for ethics.
It's hardly news that Google will set their values aside for the sake of profit. Considering how much Google already collaborates with our national intelligence agencies, this seems par for the course.
