Adding an extra layer of two-facedness to life is a step backwards, not forwards, IMHO. Speaking from experience of what it is like to be watched constantly (in a given context, community etc, pre-internet) and the damage done to one's humanity is SEVERE. Or some derivation of 'severe'. This is the thing: depending on how conformist one is [born to be]. Hence why scared, overly-conformist people who think this makes them safe, think that no harm can be done by being watched all the time. They value conformity and don't realise that taking that too far makes humans into robots and creates fascism etc.
It is also amazing how this article was surfaced via my Google Now because Google knew I was interested in this kind of stuff. If Google was evil, they would never surface this type of article that has a opposite position to Google. Also that Ad shown at the bottom of this article was probably targeted based on Google data which ultimately helps you as the author monetize the traffic you are getting.
This looks like an article written to just drive people from using Google services for the sake of not using them and asking people to forego the high quality of service experience from an ecosystem that can leverage big data and AI to give you useful information that would otherwise not be possible for the common man at the relative cost of 'free'.
I gave Bing a chance because of the rewards. That was a year ago. I learned 2 important lessons over those 12 months: Bing's rewards are terrible, but Bing search results are worse. I am glad to be back to Google search. But I agree with the premise of this article: with so much data running through Google tools, individual privacy is at risk. Time to find a new browser and/or a new search engine.
this kind of article is funny. its a trade your privacy for convenient life world now. if you really care of privacy, you have already exposed your ip address to this website, your name to your reader, your billing address to your isp, your personal informtion to your credit card company. google just know as much as they know and more. and if i have to trade my privacy anyway, whynot choose one big company which protect your privacy data better and give you better service? instead of chose some small company and trust they not save your info....forever?
Understand - nearly every website you go to, has dozens of trackers installed. It doesn't matter whether you're tracked via search, by the page you go to, by the app on your smartphone, by Facebook, your debit and credit cards, or any of the rest. Right now - you've got literally hundreds of different trackers that are cataloging your every move that they're aware of.
There are six of those across the entire Fortnite map in season 5, and none of them are especially close together. They are one of the only historical “artifacts” that made their way through rifts for the time travel theme of season 5, along with the Viking Village, and they’ve done relatively little so far other than be a nice source of chests if you come across them.
The College Scorecard was born of an Education Department effort to hold underperforming institutions accountable. But it would be a stretch, Katzman said, to credit Google for promoting accountability by surfacing the Scorecard data. For-profit colleges with underwhelming graduation rates and student-debt levels have been “some of Google’s largest advertisers” over the years, he said. “If Google really wanted to help solve the problem, they might limit advertising to the schools that had a better performance on the report card.”
