    Who would ever trust a company that`s motto is "Don`t be Evil?"

    OF COURSE THEY`RE EVIL!

    Is it really evil for google to target its ads at peoples preferences? It already happens when you shop on amazon and even when you watch tv, which uses demographic research. I would rather see ads for things I care and might want to buy then get bombarded by crap I don`t care about.

    I love google. I hope they expand their market... The know how to do stuff right... Chrome > IE/Safari... Google OS > ALL... Props to google and i hope they dominate the market, they own it... And people need to STFU about being seen on google maps.. Its a truck that takes pictures as it drives.. NOT A PRIVACY INVASION!

    Google wants your DNA, because they own a genetics research lab. Also, they want to track your Internet browsing (how dare they try to access something as private as the WORLDWIDE WEB!) so they can show you ads that you are interested in. Therefore, Google = Darth Vader.

    Also, this seems to be pretty vague about some things in order to make it seem more sinister. Like "Google wants your medical records and your DNA". Ooooh ominous. Clearly they are trying to make a clone army or something.

    In reality having a central hub for medical records can keep them organized, save money and prevent mistakes from doctors who otherwise might be working with incomplete records. Doesn`t sound too evil to me.

    It seems creepy I guess, but I like getting ads targeted toward me. Sometimes they`re really interesting or they promote games or websites I`m interested in. Occasionally I get ads for things I hate though, because I`ve visited websites for/against those things to read opinions I`d rather have relevant ads than the useless and irrelevant Toyota ad that`s on IAB as I`m typing this. But then again, sometimes the ads targeted toward me make me wonder why I`m viewed in that way. One ad on facebook recently said something like "are you a girl who wishes she were a boy and acts like a cat"... sadly it was an ad for a game I`ve played before. It had nothing to do with girlboycats, it was just an mmo :x

    So Google Chrome is now the same as an operating system? wtf?

    And the only reason they "want your DNA" is for massive research projects so that we can look at cancer, emphysema, Alzheimer`s, etc, to maybe save a god damned life. God, I used to like these vids.

    Google offers a web browser called Chrome, and is also developing an operating system called Chrome that is based on the web browser. Now you know.

    conspiracies... who the drat cares. They can have my information and target adds at my demographic. I might even find something I want to buy from those adverts. If they provide me with an excellent email service, mobile phone OS, web browser, search engine etc. I don`t care if they make some money off my info as long as I am not getting conned.

    So then what`s the thesis here?
    Google collecting private info for targeted ads
    = An Evil Galactic Empire?
    Once Google learns everything about you (that you gave to them willingly) they`ll start force choking people across the galaxy?
    I am disappoint.

    For fearing Google, for hating it.

    i don`t think our kids will want to share a social network with us, think about it- anyone unlucky enough to have their folks added as friends today is usually in despair. it will probably become a middle aged peoples` network in years to come. there will probably be a premium add-free version for our retinas too

    Googles products are fast, powerfull, reliable, light-weight, portable and free.

    That`s why they`re getting so many customers. We (the customers) pay indirectly by allowing Google to present adds to us. Which is a great deal for me, I think.

    The age of big bulky costly operating systems and services are over, I think.

    The bullcrap about Google trying to take over the world to be evul, is a load of crap. And Google is right: "If you don`t want people to know stuff, don`t put it on the web. That`s not being evil. That`s common sense.
