BetterBadNews: “Google Pollutes Links Stream With Evil Precedent For Market Censorship”

This is a pretty funny video of why the new google toolbar is evil… if anyone does not know the new toolbar has the ability to autolink certain text on a webpage… right now, upc, isbn (book codes) and addresses, but they could expand it to whatever they want.

The reason this is so bad is that it is not up to the website whether or not this can happen, but up to the toolbar/google. This makes the toolbar pretty much “spyware”. Crazy stuff.

Luckily I still use an older version…
