Is the Prime Directive of Every Corporation to Monopolize Its Marketplace?

The buzz intensifies this week as everyone asks “What happens if Google becomes Big Brother?” and “What if they decide to take over the web?” Must all corporations reach a pinnacle where they betray the loyalty of their customers in pursuit of profit? Is Teoma just next in line? This sounds to me like more of the nonsense of “Is RedHat going to be the next Redmond?

Answer: Only if we let them. The market can create monopolies, and the market can exercise free choice to prevent them and encourage competition. Think Different. Get a second opinion. Try a different browser. Try a different search engine, a different operating system or a different database management system. Have a Dr. Pepper.
