Google envisages a day when it can tell people what jobs to take and how they might spend their days off.

Founders Note:
The Drudge Title is 'GOOGLE GODS: WANT MORE PERSONAL DATA ON USERS'

My guess is his is hammering on this part:

Quote:
The race to accumulate the most comprehensive database of individual information has become the new battleground for search engines as it will allow the industry to offer far more personalised advertisements. These are the holy grail for the search industry, as such advertising would command higher rates.

Mr Schmidt told journalists in London: “We cannot even answer the most basic questions because we don’t know enough about you. That is the most important aspect of Google’s expansion.”

hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Finally we see the end is near. Google couldn't wait as long as it would take, and are now prematurely going after too much personal information. It's only a matter of time now, as the public will eventually recognize the problem.

Greed will get you every time.

It was scary for a while there, though, as they slowly earned the trust and support of the public. Had that kept up, they'd have complete control someday. Something good comes out of Wall Street, it seems.

They already know too

They already know too much.

The buzz in conference hallways was about Andrew Feldmar, a psychotherapist in western Canada, who was barred from a flight to the U.S., where his children live, after an American border guard Googled his name and discovered that in 2001, he had written about consuming LSD almost 40 years ago.

How could we let this happen?

..

Now that is some scary shit.

Everyday now I keep reading about more and more abuses by Law Enforcement.

More and More Law Enforcement in the US appears to be on a fast train headed towards Fascism and nobody is even slowing down the train...

What's really scary is

What's really scary is Google's ties with the CIA and other Government agencies via their initial seed capital. Most of this profiling technology is going to end up in the hands of the department of the interior. How long will it be before thinking of a crime is illegal?

West Europe and in fact the whole EU is also taking on a Borg-like form, but at least there is some effort to maintain privacy. It's already too late for America.

Google's Vision of the Future

What more bizarre quotes can come from the plex? This is beyond simple arrogance. Who else could get away with making such incredible statements?
Query of the future on Google

Q: What time did I have a bowel movement this morning?
G: Our data suggests you had a BM at 4:00 AM

Q: How do you know?
G: "Last night you searched for Chinese fusion and then asked for directions to Boi Lai restaurant after touring their website.
You looked at "sizzling rice chicken" on BoiLai dot com because you clicked the link to that entree and spent 45 seconds analyzing the text. We know the last time you ate "sizzling rice chicken" for dinner you emailed your Doctor friend in New York at 4:30 am and told her "sizzling rice chicken" always interupts your sleep and you just took some Maalox to settle your stomach.
We concur with your doctor friend and encourage you to steer away from "sizzling rice chicken" and suggest taking Tums before eating ethnic foods."

Contextual units will hit my Gmail sidebar with ads for Maalox, ethnic restaurants, tums and physicians.
