DoubleClick Away Your Privacy

Here's a cool twist: Microsoft is arguing that Google, with its impending purchase of DoubleClick, will have too much monopoly power. Not only that, but Google may simply know too much about our private lives, the boys from Redmond argue.

Of course, Microsoft wanted this monopoly power and the ability to know too much about our private lives, too, as it was also bidding for DoubleClick. Sour grapes? Perhaps.

Is Google too powerful and does it know too much? Answers welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
