In the computer and network industry there are a handful giants that everyone has heard of, but there is one little known giant that many people may not have heard of. A little known company based out of Mountain View, California called Google. Just in case you are not familiar with Google, let me fill you in. You’re an idiot and I don’t know how you possibly found my site. Please put your computer into it’s original packaging and ship it back to the manufacturer.
In a recent news story, Google has announced their plans to increase their ever expanding reach by releasing a full fledged Operating System for home computers. I suppose that their marketing data on everyone in the civilized world, including their age, race, sex, interests, where they live, where they travel to, where they go on vacation, an index of their email, who they communicate with, what tv shows they watch, music interests, office documents, news interests and preference to boxers or briefs… well.. I guess that isn’t good enough for them. Now they want to seal the deal by dominating your life by gaining control over your home PC entirely.
Is anyone else a *little* bit concerned? I’m sure that Micro$oft is wetting their pants a little bit. Luckily, Google has the ability to make a piece offering by sending the Micro$oft executives new underwear that fit’s their particular preference.
The definition of a monopoly is when a single entity has significant control over a particular market, giving the entity a great latitude of control over the pricing and terms of the services and products offered in the given market. Now, technically this definition doesn’t really apply to Google. Instead, what Google is doing is trying to gain a significant level of control over the lives and habits of it’s individual users and customers.
I am not sure if there is a term for this level of domination, but this is another case in point for my “Google is evil” theory. Just in case you havn’t been following my blog regularly, let me restate the theory for you. “Google is evil”. That’s the theory.
People. We can’t let any one entity have this level of domination. Before technology, I don’t really see how this could have been possible but if there were a single company back in the 60′s with this level of big brotherhood, (aside from government) don’t you think there would have been public outcry? Today, especially with the power of technology and the ease of sharing information, where’s the public outcry?
Where is the fear for our privacy? Who is protecting you? oh… yeah, I forgot. Googles got your back. ok…
Sleep safe I guess. For today.
