A Dose of Healthy Competition or Malpractice?
Google Blogoscoped mentions a rumor that Google is setting up a new health info service in addition to its Co-op health page. This rumor has been bouncing around for a while and perhaps has something to do with the KinderStart lawsuit. Afterall, the judge recently ruled that KinderStart's suit against Google could proceed because of the antitrust issues raised, which makes one wonder whether Google's foray into the health business has anything to do with its sandboxing of the KinderStart health search engine. There may be no connection or just a matter of coincidence - and KinderStart could justifiably be sandboxed for numerous reasons anyway - but it would be especially evil if true.
