Re: On a more sinister note: Are you afraid of Google?

I too would like to appologise, as i posted more than my fair share of off topic posts, no offense was intended.

Having said that i do stand by what i said in post 9, I am for the moment satisfied that google 'gets it' with regard to privacy issues etc, i think there are other companies that we need to worry about more than google, although that doesn't mean we shouldn't remain vigilant.

Re: On a more sinister note: Are you afraid of Google?

You know it's happening in China but I think it's as likely to happen in countries with socialistic governments. They will have simply different excuses : they will be trying to protect your children from paedophiles, fight with terrorism, etc. While fighting with those things is fair, it can be also a useful roomful of smoke to get what they need. In Poland we have an expression for this (not sure it exists in other countries) "turbid water is a good place for fishing". Fish in this case may be killing off political enemies, keeping society in line or whatsoever.

Personally, I'm not afraid of Google at the current time, but I won't fool myself if the government will need information from Google, sooner or later it will get it.

Schadt91, and what do you suggest? Voting? Moving to another country?

Re: On a more sinister note: Are you afraid of Google?

A good strong vpn connection and duckduckgo should keep the powers and forces of evil guesssing! And when they do track me down, they'll find searches on linux forums for speeding up iceweasel!  ...which are really coded messages meant to topple the state.
Perhaps I should look into encryption as well!

Re: On a more sinister note: Are you afraid of Google?

I'm much more afraid of my ISP.
Using Google is a choice with alternatives.
Using an ISP is a choice with poor alternatives (other ISPs or no internet).
One day I'll shell out for a VPN and actually get around to encrypting my hard drive, etc.
PM VPN suggestions please.

I'm not afraid of Google. In moment you're on internet you are exposed.. And Google isn't worst beast in the jungle.
For paranoids over here, encrypt your stuff with 30 character password and be still for a day smile
