I wouldn't say were furious...

I just think it's lame what Google is doing.

I mean... use the smell test. Does this smell bad? Is it giving users a good experience?

So much for "do no evil". They're becoming just like any
other big megacorp. And this is only one example of that.

OpenDNS is 'opt-in'; Google/Dell is 'opt-out'. I support opt-in; I oppose opt-out. Opt-out is what makes spam legal (according to "CAN-SPAM"), and I HATE spam (almost as much as I hate the RIAA and SoundExchange).

Just another reason not to buy a Dell.

(I don't get the "furious" label by justin either--I guess long posts equate to furious for some; some people, though--such as David--just try to be thorough.)
