But think of it this way: Google’s responsibility to their end users is (very) roughly analogous to the responsibility that television networks have to their viewers. Clearly, TV networks want viewers, and all their programming is chosen and shaped toward that end. But the viewers aren’t the people paying the bills—the advertisers are. CBS makes their money by delivering advertisements to the greatest number of viewers possible.
Probably one of the best things about Google’s relationship with carriers and end users you’ll read all day.
