GoogAOL

Yuck. From the NY Times on the upcoming AOL and Google deal:

"Finally, around 9 p.m., Richard D. Parsons, chief executive of Time Warner told Eric E. Schmidt, chief executive of Google, that he would accept Google's recently sweetened offer. Google, which prides itself on the purity of its search results, agreed to give favored placement to content from AOL throughout its site, something it has never done before."

Favored placement for AOL? Nuff said...

The first public example of Google making a potentially dangerous decision because they need to listen to the requests of their big customers? How natural is natural search anyways?
