How much more money could he have made had he put all the time he spent complaining about Google, suing them, and then writing about it into improving his product? Or coming up with something that's at least not totally lame?

At decent programmer salaries, $761 is like 2 days of work. Probably more if you're self employed and have a decent business. There's a reason why startups do their best not to get involved in lawsuits...

You horribly misread the article if you think he did this to get his $761 back.

Agreed. You don't take Google to small claims court to win $761, you take them to small claims court and win so that you can write about it in the Huffington Post and have a bunch of nerds react to it.
