Google’s hand in the cookie jar

Mocality, a Kenyan online business directory, levelled some pretty serious allegations of misconduct at Google yesterday.

My initial suspicion was that this was most likely to be fraudsters piggybacking on the Google name, but Google’s initial response seems to be an implicit acknowledgement that this activity has indeed originated from Google employees in Kenya and India.

Looks like “do no evil” is taking a real beating this week. What will be interesting is to see how it’s handled from here.
