Re: [newtech-1] Google and Privacy

Google "accidentally" harvested that data when it was trying to collect geolocation data for WiFi network triangulation, it wasn't collecting passwords and private information to use it against you. In fact, Google admitted to the breach, and implemented increased security measures as well as secured and destroyed (or has agreed to destroy) the data. I don't love Google by any means, in fact some would call me an Apple fanboy, but they didn't do anything that would warrant me stopping use of their services. This was just a mistake and they are paying the price, it was nothing that was intended to be malicious. That simple.

 Last week Google admitted that they were violating peoples privacy during its street view mapping project. Scooping up peoples passwords, information etc.  Google was fined 7 million dollars but is worth 220 billion dollars. Will this stop you from using Google products knowing that they can and have violated peoples privacy? Or you care but wont do anything because Google is so great? Or will you do something about it and try your best to stop them? Or  will you do nothing cause you don't care?
