Could Google be using its own AdWords system against its own customers?

Google, the company who's internal motto is, infamously "Do No Evil," is getting some grief from some popular bloggers as well as customers of its automated keyword-based advertising system known as Adwords. If you have a product or service that you think would be helpful to users of Google's search engine and you want to intercept their keyword searches, you can participate in one of Google's keyword auctions.

Demo out of Sun's Labs proves the best tech of all is the one you forget is there

How to alienate your government customers 101?

Sooner or later, it was bound to happen. Some tech media outlet would send one of its bloodhounds on the trail that was left in the wake of Massachusetts' decision to standardize on the OpenDocument Format (ODF)for the archival and retrieval of productivity documents (word processing, spreadsheets, etc.
