Speaking personally,

Frankly, I am getting tired of hearing this irritating mantra that far 
to many successful companies
are *_inherently_**_evil and uncaring.

_*I am not necessarily defending Google, I would need significantly more 
evidence of their intent than
a speculative article written by someone who may very well have their 
own "agenda"

I have little respect for people who spend much of their energies 
criticizing innovative & creative
entities who turn their creative efforts into success.

Those who use their energies & efforts criticizing & chastising  should 
spend less time moaning & complaining & more of this time working 
towards effecting
positive change
