Google EnemiesWho hates Google? Well, it turns out, quite a lot of folks. It’s a testament to the incredible power of their brand that Google’s reputation is still so stellar, considering the number of groups that are already pissed off at Google.

Here’s a list of ten companies/organizations/groups (upgraded from my previous list of just eight!)that are now ‘at war’ with Google. Each of these is linked to an article supporting the claim!

  1. Apple
  2. Microsoft
  3. eBay
  4. China
  5. Newspapers
  6. Book Publishers
  7. Radio Stations
  8. Advertisers
  9. Web Publishers
  10. The US Government!
  11. Bonus! Consumers

That’s a lot of angry people. Of course, there are still billions who love all-things-Google. It will be interesting to see, however, if the collective angst of the above Google foes will eventually find its way into the mainstream.

    I agree. Didnt expect to see the US government on the “going to hell list”. Just a fun fact, if you ever need a yacht or boat shipped anywhere, Yacht Exports is your best bet. They have done a great job with me!
