Evil Holds More Money for Google

“Google’s mantra is “Don’t be evil,” which as corporate mottoes go is the equivalent of “Build an eternal bonfire in the parking lot and fuel it with thousand-dollar bills and the occasional Gutenberg Bible.”

“The worldwide market for evil is stratospheric, and Google is uniquely positioned to take advantage of it. They’ve made some halting inroads in China, but economists — many of whom are themselves evil — estimate that if Google abandoned its inefficient policy completely, it could capture 38 percent of the evil market. That’s more than Microsoft and Lindsey Lohan combined. Here are just a few of the many ways Google could provide cutting-edge, convenient and extremely evil services.”
