In its rise to web dominance, Google has displaced plenty of companies, upended several industries, and made a slew of enemies along the way. ZDNet Australia's sister site CNET examines which companies have been affected.

It has allowed Google to send untrustworthy, repetitive and unsatisfying content to the back of the class. No more A’s for cheaters.
