Re: Google

I agree, the privacy policy is "not good" but I've never considered my searchwords confidential. And whatever helps a company put food on 30,000 tables can't be entirely evil --at least I hope it can't. We'll see, yikes.

I liked the very good....lovely to see human kindness in action. The rest of it gives me the shivers. We are so close to being watched 24/7 by big brother it isn't even funny.

EC- We need to know the good as well as the bad. Especially when the good is that good.

Lawless- I had to follow that story. I was pretty sure people would rally.
Ya know, just the idea of everything you do being monitored.. it should be illegal somehow.
