Google acting like Yahoo...

I was installing the new Google Earth when I noticed that Google is becoming Yahoo/Real/Microsoft these days.  Why can’t we just have options in your setups that don’t try and cross-promote?  Its cheap and makes me lose faith in companies.

This is just like the “Do you want to install the Yahoo Toolbar” that has snuck itself into every shareware/free app i’ve installed in the last year. If you are going to insist on this kind of promotion, you should make it off by default.  Putting these sorts of options with the hope that the user isn’t paying attention and just pressed Finish without reading sucks.

Bad Google…no gmail…
