Google ends its boycott of CNET

white flag.jpgCheck out this story on CNET's News.com site.

Google chief executive Eric Schmidt has had a phone interview with CNET, the article says. That comes after Schmidt himself had supposedly imposed a year-long ban on the organization for publishing personal information about him that was easily retrievable with Google's search engine. More interestingly, the article is written by Elinor Mills, the author of the original article that Schmidt took offense to.

"We're celebrating our seventh birthday...We had a pretty strong year," Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt said in a phone interview with CNET News.com, as he listed the launch of new products including Google Talk, Google Earth, Google Video and Google Desktop Search. "And we've sort of been struggling here with respect to the index. It has always been much larger than the others."

Paul Kapustka, at Advanced IP Pipeline, seems to have been the first to notice the piece.

I note with regret the complicity of Google with censorship, oppression, and human rights abuses in China, in the Chinese internet. Google is a great site and I shall miss it. I will no longer visit its site for any reason anymore. The compromise of integrity for profit diminishes Google to the point where more will be lost to them than gained in the long run. This will haunt them forever. Good bye.
