Can you say “sour grapes”?…

Aren’t we all getting tired of comments like this Dave?

Congratulations to the Blogger folk on getting their Blog This functionality embedded in the Google toolbar. Should have used the Blogger API so it would work with all blogging tools, but that’s just my opinion of course. [Scripting News]

Maybe I’m the only one this occured to (!) but Google is in the business of marketing their product and one of those products happens to be Blogger. By NOT using the Blogger API they drive business to their software. If people want to use the “blog this” button on the Google Toolbar they’ll sign up for a Blogger weblog giving money to Google. Contrary to popular belief Google is a business and businesses are about making money.
