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. Danny Sullivan at SearchEngineLand offers a wise blog post with relevant historical perspective: we've heard these tipping point arguments before, at least a 14 times over the last few years. Everyone stay calm.
