Google CEO Eric Schmidt really has a knack for expressing relatively benign ideas in a way that makes him and his company look incredibly creepy...
" With your permission, you give us more information about you, about your friends, and we can improve the quality of our searches. We don't need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you've been. We can more or less know what you're thinking about. "

Google CEO: "We Know Where You Are. We Know Where You've Been. We Can More Or Less Know What You're Thinking About."
and they’re doing it for the 0
Google is creepy, man. If Google were a person, he’d have bodies buried under his porch.
Are you sure that you don't mean ... George Orwell's 1984?
I also wonder how dogs must feel being on a lease. Is it degrading to them to be walked down the street on a lease? I have no idea because Google won't tell me.
Were two years into that time period but yes i did mean 1984
On Explorer, I’m using

I’m using them all the time for google, the Big Brother Obama spying creeps.
Thanks, I’m saving this info. Will check it out tomorrow and install or whatever it’s called.
Most people own their dogs. I didn’t know you could lease them!
So Eric, where is she?
There are no shortage of people in this world that want to climb all the way up your ass and know and control everything you do, think, and say. Obama, Pelosi, this squid CEO ... all of them are megalomaniacal and totalitarian, and want more than anything to have control over others.
Well where I live, it’s a town ordinance to lease them. I don’t like it much myself but I guess I must abide. Of course, when I get out to the woods, the dog gets to run free.
Many tenants shackled to oppressive leass feel seething rage towards their overmaster landlords holding the lease. In fact, resentment against the tyranny of the tenancies has fueled revolution from below in the formerly feudal lands of Europe. Sometimes they even cried havoc and let slip the dogs of war, sore paws and all.
Someday in the near future, google will be my ‘me’ remote.
I’ll have a 100 inch screen, and when I wake in the morning, I will only have to say ‘mind google me’ and then I can lay in bed as all my thoughts, desires, questions are played out on the screen without me having to think them again or type them in, google will know what I want and give it to me, saving me the trouble of having to think a bunch of fresh new thoughts every day.
That and a bacon & beer diet will mean that I have finally reached the Homer Simpson state of perfection.
The In private is a good feature. Also, you might consider switching to another search engine. I stopped using Google some months back because of their attitude about privacy (doesn’t exist) and use this instead:
Scroogle Scraper It’s a pretty good search engine
They tweak Google all the time with cartoons etc. and guarantee that there are no cookies or no search term records and they delete the access log w/i 48 hours.
Thank you for that information, I’ll be using it whenever I do searches from now on.
AND thank you for the ping star :)
