p2pnet view P2P | Advertising:- Online advertising company Google, accused of “unfairly” hindering access to “certain Web sites by overlooking them in its dominant search engine” by companies including Foundem, myTriggers and SourceTool/TradeComet, admits it refers search users to its own services.
But No worries, says Gargler-in-chief Eric Schmidt. That’s OK because Google “blends them with others”, says MarketWatch, noting earlier this month the Texas attorney general launched an investigation.
Speaking at the TechCrunch Disrupt Conference, Schmidt also addressed other issues, including “the departure of Google employees to other, smaller ventures”.
“It’s not a huge crisis,” Schmidt says in the story citing in particular “the former Google employees who left to found popular, location-based mobile service Foursquare”.
Those employees were “at Google too early, if you will,” Schmidt reckons. “It was just better for them to do it outside” of Google, he says, adding, “Obviously, we would prefer those things to occur within Google.”
Speaking of missing employees, Wherefore art thou, Larry and Sergey? – wondered p2pnet in August, asking, “has the Fox taken over the hen-house?”
