I don't know, as soon as I'm expected to pay hundreds of dollars for a Google product, I might have to take issue with them, but I haven't given a cent to Google since I've known them. Other companies have in my behalf through advertising and licensing sure, but I receive a service from Google that is pretty simple and invaluable and isn't designed to gouge my pockets like Apple and Microsoft~ so though you try to make them all seem similar, from my vantage point~ they're not to me, nor are they to many others.

I kind of wish Google would go into the console business and compete with Microsoft on that front. I enjoy Google's business practices, I'd like to see how they handle such thing as digital purchases, online content and distribution and networking. I wonder if they would offer free matchmaking as a service instead of charging me 60 dollars a year. In fact, I don't have to wonder~ though a hypothetical question, I'm almost sure they wouldn't.

That's the kind of reputation they have, yet somehow I have to compare them to Apple and Microsoft? I just don't feel it.
