That didn’t last long. Google is once again talking with CNET reporters, despite their snooty fit of a month and a half ago. In fact, it was Google’s Chief Executive Eric Schmidt himself who gave the interview, the very man who had gotten his nose all in a twist because CNET had the audacity to put his name in his very own search engine and report on the results. I guess–at least, I hope–that Google came to its senses and saw how foolish they looked in all this. Maybe Google won’t explicitedly admit they were wrong, but kudos to them for doing the right thing.
