The terrifying ways Google is destroying your privacy

Posted: May 22, 2012 |   Comments

Google appears to have morphed from a corporation that proclaims, "Don't
be evil" to one insisting that users "Join the Borg."
In 1999, Scott McNealy, the former
head of Sun MicroSystems, reportedly declared, "You have zero privacy
anyway....Get over it." He unintentionally let the proverbial cat out of
the bag of the digital age.In
2009, McNealy's assessment was confirmed by Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt.
In an interview with NBC's Mario Bartiromo, he proclaimed, "If you have
something that you don't want anyone to know maybe you shouldn't be
doing it in the first place." Schmidt's words have become Google's new
mantra. Welcome to 21st-century corporate morality.
Now, a decade-plus
later,McNealy'sprophetic words have take on a far more sinister
significance than he probably intended. They are increasingly becoming
the operating assumption of the digital corporate state. Whether going
online, using a PC, smartphone, tablet or digital TV, users can no
longer assume they have any privacy. In fact, users should assume they
have absolutely no privacy.McNealy's
and Schmidt's words both speak to a fundamental change in the
definition of privacy. Once upon a time not so long ago, a sealed letter
or a personal telephone conversation was considered private, protected
communications. Those days are over.
