@Gargron thanks for saying something, as you're probably aware I had different impressions of the situation
You "made a mistake"? You just "forgot to mention" major functionality in a product spec sheet?
BEE. ESS. 🐂 💩
"It wasn't activated". Trust us. We just put it there to enable us to make your experience better in the future. Right. It isn't a big leap from this to "accidentally" enabling such things without informing or obtaining consent.
"It's easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission" is not an ethical policy Google. You have lost all trust.

So there is this brilliant 13 year old girl who is already quite a journalist with her own online news site called "Orange Street News" that covers local news in her home town.
She is visiting a border town in Arizona and did a video on the local opinions about The Wall and has been very respectful and objective. But a certain police officer threatened her with arrest because of course 13 year old journalists are dangerous.
Sorry Lou this is my favourite Unbox Therapy video now
Hi here are some snow otters
Privacy is not a science, it is a human right
My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)
Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.
So we are beginning to see the fall of Facebook... it's going to be a slow moving disaster, but the foundation is crumbling, and this baby is coming down...
Now we need to address copyright.
When I started playing around with the idea of a radio station last week, I thought CC artists, because I can't afford a licsense... now I am faced with how many high quality artist are in CC licensing frameworks...
hackers.town:2600 is going to stand for the future that was lost.
As in all things we are going to restore the future. In this case, this means supporting only artists that release content in CC as they are taking risks and have skin in the game of bringing about the future we were once promised... with their art and their work.
You have my respect and dedication.
