    In my country we have right to know what information companies store about their users. Google is the only company refusing to leave out their data. Why?

    Howard is proud of using Google voice and how speech to text work. Google index everything. I would love to read these index to know how much Howard's wig cost, who his lovers are and so on.

    Google knows:

    [​IMG] What you think: Your interests, desires, needs, and intentions: Google.com searches, etc.
    [​IMG] What you read: News, commentary, and books: Google News, Book Search, DoubleClick, etc.
    [​IMG] What you watch: YouTube, Google TV
    [​IMG] What you write/receive: Gmail and Google Docs
    [​IMG] Who you’ve communicated with, what you talked about: Groups, Buzz, Gmail, Voice, etc.
    [​IMG] What you believe: Politics and religion: search, News, YouTube, Groups, Gmail, Buzz, etc.
    [​IMG] Everywhere you go on the Internet: DoubleClick ad-tracking, Chrome, search, etc.
    [​IMG] What you plan to do or where you’re going: Calendar, Maps, Streetview, Android, etc.
    [​IMG] Where your home, work, commutes and hangouts are: Android, Maps, Street View, etc.
    [​IMG] You and your family’s voiceprints and faceprints: Voice, Picasa, translation, etc.

    Sure, that's easy to say now.

    Pretty soon we'll have people like Feltspot making decisions for us.

    Damn, it got chilly in here all of a sudden.

    I was a beta tester for grandcentral.com

    7 years ago.

    Check out www.grandcentral.com and see who bought it, just for shits and giggles ok?

    I was with grandcentral pre-google as well. But GOOG buying their way into new businesses is nothing new. Picassa, youtube, etc.
