Google is one of the most evil companies out there for a company that started out with don't be evil. The have some very smart people, some amazing tech, but unfortunately they have some very evil people working for them help bent on maintaining their advantage by any means necessary.

Without using Google's push notifications, you are going to end up with something that works about 75% of the time. When this first started happening to me, I lost tons of time thinking it was a bug only to finally realize I needed to use Google's library to get reliability for what once worked.

>Google is the most evil, of the companies that started with "don't be evil".

Curious, what companies use that same phrase you are comparing it to?

Or if that isn't what you meant, where is Apple and Microsoft on the Good vs Evil dichotomy?
