The Content Presented Is Extremely Outdated and Irrelevant.

If you want to fear the future, examine history from the point of view presented in this series. Rampant Google-bashing and old social commentary. Fails to mention that Google has answered all of our questions for 12 years, never asked for a penny from anyone and keeps getting better. Acknowledges Google has changed America but fails to note that it united the world in the act of asking for information and expecting a response. The worthwhile critical approach to Google is not to compare it to Austin Powers' Dr evil, or the communist USSR, but to examine the correlations between Google Inc. and Christianity's messiah prophecy. Don't you Google every day?
