Companies like microsoft love the idea because it will also help them combat open source.

    But good grief.... you get a big fat facepalm megs!

    The one thing we can be thankful for so far, is that Google seems to act semi-responsibly and ethically... at least compared with... I dunno... your typical telco...
    Mock me if you will as I have come to expect with you Willie !Your very words bely your argument don't you think ?
    "they can data mine your personal info for better targetted ads and other services etc." If company's are able to 'mine' my data what would stop a hostile government from doing the same thing , willie ?

    You without fail will reactivley support the far left causes at every opportunity and have lost all credibility as an objective thinking individual .Do you find the idea of the government being interested in what the opposing political activity is especially where it concerns the current administration foolish and idiotic ?

    Do you notice coincidences and call any question of commonality as a potential scheme a case of TinFoil madness.These things have been proven to have happened many times in the past with NSA 'mining' web traffic for years and tracking phone calls for 'key word 'traffic !

    The reason an outfit like Google would appeal to those who listen is obvious .NSA is a very expensive organisation to operate with billions in equipment costs and highly paid operators better suited to espionage work than domestic evesdropping !Google on the other hand is an organization with a common interest in data mining who's operations are loaded with storage and computing power and most importantly politically very friendly to this administration .

    Search engines as we, the public,now use them are a 'keyed' that is request driven by a user.There is no reason why several hundred or even thousand algorithmically driven searches all operating at the same times across the web .Much as the spiders they now use but with built in criteria to * parse things of interest for the powers that be !

    It is a given that NSA has been doing this domestically for years and and your people moaned and groaned about the loss of freedon .With the advent of Obama's incentives and the political awakening of Google you choose to make light of the observed possibility's of Googles being use in domestic spying .

    You make a great observation. I've been scanning the same old blogs and sites as I have been for the past years and the concern for secret spying has all but slowed to a crawl since the Messiah took over. I certainly hope it's not partisan bullshoy. It's still a big problem in my opinion.
