A Google Tipping Point? No.

Google's had some recent minor stumbles: overpromoting their own products in top-of-page "tips", losing 60 gmail accounts, suffering a Gmail javascript security exploit, closing down new applications for the SOAP search api. Some pundits have jumped on this these small issues as indication that Google's reached a tipping point and public goodwill will rapidly swing away from the search giant.

Everyone stay calm.
