Puh-leeze!

by Roger Pynn

Chris Matyszczyk’s creative work and his edgy writing as a CNET blogger have always appealed to me, but c’mon Chris … you’re living in fantasyland if you think this is the first time Google has commercialized its home page.

Chris suggests that Google offering a chance to sample the new Nexus One Google Android Phone on the hallowed ground of its home page is somehow going to destroy the confidence of the faithful.

In fact, they’ve been promoting Google services there for years. If the rest of the world – like Chris – hasn’t noticed it might make someone in Mountain View very nervous about the effectiveness (and, hence, the value) of that space.
