Careful of depending on Google

2009-12-29 17:11:20.024863+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

The Story of Totlol:

Google releases a public API. They watch what third-party developers do with the API and modify the Terms of Service (ToS) for that API in a way that prevents breakthrough potential. Google may then move to offer a similar service based on their platform rather than the API.
