    They consider this news, while ignoring others:

    Google's search engine appears to have filters on it. If, for example, I want to find a study that discusses the link between someone being abused as a child and later becoming a homosexual, it's very difficult to find. Other search engines do not have these restrictions.

    Here's an interesting article about the power google has. It's scary.

    Google blackballs reporters, CNET - Aug. 5, 2005

    Google Inc. has blacklisted all CNET reporters for a year, after the popular technology news website published personal information of one of Google's founders in a story about growing privacy concerns for the Internet search engine, according to a CNET statement.

    Ah yes, for longer than we wish to think. Remember when ATT had to divest itself of all the 'bells'? My ex wrote those programs. Me? Well my interest is in making tech work for me. That is all.

    Well, the truth of the matter is that I started programming computers in the late 70s. (Yes, I'm quite old.) Back then the standard was the 8088 and the 6502. Oh, the good 'ole days.
