This will have to be a brief post, as I have 6 minutes of time left on this public terminal. Google wants to insist that I supply them with my DOB (date of birth) and my location in order for me to keep my google gmail email address. I have insisted it’s none of their business when I was born or where I live. They have recently disabled my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) so if anyone needs to reach me, I am at email@example.com
It’s all just moree evidence that our beloved web behemoth Google.com, located right here in California, is becoming more like Big Brother and less like the loveable and brilliant “Don’t Be Evil” guys who founded the company.
Feel free to sound off if you are also scrappling with Google over your privacy, especially if you dissent from the official Obama party line of how great everything is going in America these days. More on this soon…..
