Google's Reputable Reputation

I'm not sure if I should be surprised that Google was found to be the most reputable company in America. The vast majority of us use Google for search, and lots of its stuff is free.

You have to really follow technology to know some of the insidious things the company does, like killing media companies and invading our privacy -- all while not seeming to care.

Apple came in fifth, and Amazon (the survey, I'm sure, was done before its three-day cloud outage) came in eight.
