Google and Privacy

Some people are worried about how the company Google is shrinking privacy.

I'm not sure if I should be one of them. I do use a lot of Google services (mail, calendar, documents, photos) and have never faced any problems. After all, the e-mail I write or read is already not private because it is processed by my internet provider.

The most startling example was how the company's browser, Chrome, originally had a Terms of Use that gave the company license to any materials people created using the browser.

Now Google is trying to track the spread of the flu. Some folks applaud this effort at help and others are alarmed by it.
