I accept our Google overlords.
I would willingly hand over all my data to them for superior free services and infrastructure improvements rather than getting it stolen by Microsoft, Apple, or the government.
It's 2016, its time to side with a botnet.
Part of that is true. I do wish she was hotter, however I'm not going to let one attribute bring the whole thing down. I've been with her for a while and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
I was wondering if other people feel this way too. >>52245628
Yeah, but its via Google. So I get all the perks.
Google have the best security team on the planet. I'd rather them have my data than one of the other giants.
After all, it is important to THEM. They're not going to let others just have it.
People may not switch but it is still bad for their business.
It could make getting new partners harder, getting more businesses on board. And the data is important for their core business, advertising. If that data got out it could harm their advertising revenue, even if people didn't leave.
No, they're going to protect that data like they're Scrooge McDuck.
well what's your point?
The same thing applies to hotmail and iCloud, probably even more so because they're not as established as gmail and related google services and thus have more to lose.
And other than the pseudo-incident for apple/icloud (which wasn't a security breach, only missing anti-bruteforce mechanism), nothing happened to those two either
People who are afraid of Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc. are the same kinds of people who come up with conspiracy theories about every single event in history. They are irrational and their ideas incite instability and division. Luckily their kind is declining.
As fear of corporate-government of partnerships declines, we move closer and closer to a more safe and secure society.
Of course - they're not going to let others just have it...
Modern Japan still has an authoritarian government with very clear involvement in the economy and pretty much all aspects of life. Not many holocausts going on there these days. Same in South Korea which has a surveillance state more intense than that of the US. Singapore is another example, as are Hong Kong and Taiwan. All of which are highly stable and prosperous places.
On the other hand, Weimar Republic had no surveillance state to deal with the rise of radical nationalism. Tsarist Russia had no surveillance state to deal with the rise of radical communism. If they did, communist and nazi organizations would have been stopped in their tracks.
Fuck that, Apple is the one company I still borderline trust not to spy on me. When you're selling vast quantities of hardware with huge markups, you don't *need* to sell personal info too.
 Meaning I don't actually trust them implicitly since they're still a large American corporation, but rather than I consider them a relatively far safer choice than, say, Google.
