I trust the independent voice

I nearly clicked on Google's video about it's new product, Google+, the facebook killer (we shall see). I almost did it, but then I thought, "Do I trust the Google video about Google?". There are other videos out there, of course, like the one I watched the other day, and this one was very explicit about it independence. With the amount of independent, worthy voices of review and opinion, it seems less plausible to me that I should listen to the corporate source, at least when it comes to marketing messages, which are slanted by design.
Better, I think, to listen to a plethora of opinions from the outside, closer to my own vantage point, than use the precious seconds I have to wallow in adspeak.
