  • Top Google Image Searches for Scott Adams Turn Him Into a Nazi

    Newsbusters ^ | December 15, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Imagine looking at the Google Images search engine results for yourself and see that among the first ten images to pop up is you dressed as a Nazi, even though you never wore such garb. You might know how Dilbert creator Scott Adams felt when he saw such photoshopped images of himself appear as images #4and #7 (as of this writing) in Google Images. The normally mild mannered Adams was understandably quite upset over this in his Thursday Periscope and YouTube video especially since the images were linkedto a fake Twitter account that has already been taken down as well...

    Google works with establishment conservative think tanks that argue against regulating the tech giant, one of which had its pro-Google opinions published in National Review, according to a new report. Audio recordings obtained by Wired reveal that Google cooperates with and funds a range of establishment conservatives in D.C. that help it fend off scrutiny and oversight from politicians. The organizations named in Wireds report are the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), and the Cato Institute. ... In case anyone still takes bought-and-paid-for establishment arguments about free markets and competition seriously, thats a special privilege Silicon...

    On Tuesday, multiple Republican congressmen ripped into Google for listing the far-Left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a "trusted flagger" on its platform YouTube. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) ripped into Google CEO Sundar Pichai for trusting an organization that brands conservative and Christian groups "hate groups" along with the Ku Klux Klan. "You have a trusted flagger, you had indicated, called the Southern Poverty Law Center," Gohmert told Pichai. "The Southern Poverty Law Center really has stirred up more hate than about any other group I know." Gohmert referenced the 2012 terrorist attack against...

    Casey Stengel would have spotted this bogus play, the so-called Google congressional hearing, from the cheap seats. "Can't anybody here play this game?" the famous baseball manager would have asked the Republicans hemming and hawing and ignoring their way through the biggest existential threat to conservatives ever. Apparently not, Casey. The scene was the House Judiciary Committee. Waiting to testify was the CEO of Google, where for at least the last five years, conservatives have been attacked, marginalized, removed, defamed, harassed, and demonetized all to the sounds of glee if not ecstasy from purple-haired Google engineers. At least the...

    How did this happen? Big Tech lobbyists orchestrated the quiet insertion of a seemingly innocuous provision (Article 19.17) into the deal that is based on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Section 230, much beloved by big tech, and an essential building block of their monopolistic dominance, holds that platforms like Facebook cannot be held liable as a "publisher or speaker" of their users' content.
  • Californians are asking Google, 'Should I move out?'

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | December 14, 2018 | By Amy Graff,
    Of all the possible "should I?" questions, the one Californians are typing into the Google search engine the most is "Should I move out?" This probably isn't surprising when you consider all your friends who are priced out of California's sky-high housing market and constantly talking about moving to Oregon, where they can buy a sweet bungalow in Portland for $300,000. (Admit it, you have thought about this too.) Using Google Trends data, AT&T's All Home Connections identified the most popular "Should I?" questions each state Googled in 2018 - and the results are fascinating, and at times hilarious. Texans...
  • Alternative Search Engines instead of Google

    Metallicman ^ | 14DEC18 | Editorial staff
    Back in the day, I was one of the first people to start using Google as a search engine. I liked its clean interface, and simplicity. Of course, over the years, other people also found this to be the preferential search engine. Unfortunately, Google became big, powerful and yes, evil. They siphon up your personal information with zero regard to fourth amendment protections. They sell the information to the highest bidder, and give it away for free if the person is part of a government agency. Unfortunately, people like myself VALUE privacy. And that means that I no longer can...

    California Democrat Ted Lieu bemoaned on Wednesday that though he would love to be able to regulate the content of speech, including that on Fox News, he cant do it because of the U.S. Constitution. Lieu made the comments during an interview about the testimony of Google CEO Sundar Pichai at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, where he dismissed the allegations that the tech giant amplifies negative stories about Republican lawmakers, saying if you want positive search results, do positive things." CNN host Brianna Keilar praised Lieu for his performance but asked whether other Democrats should have used the committee...

Mr Pichai was being quizzed by members of the House Judiciary Committee about the way his tech firm runs it business.

    Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said Monday that the internet giant steers clear of 'political bias,' arguing that this is a core principle of its business to maintain trust of users. Pichai also said privacy and security are essential parts of Google's mission, and that the company is committed to working with the US government 'to keep our country safe and secure.' The prepared remarks released Monday, a day ahead of Pichai's appearance at the House Judiciary Committee, come with Google under fire on several fronts, on issues around political bias, data security and its domination of internet search. Pichai...

    Emails leaked exclusively to Breitbart News reveal that a group of Google employees, with encouragement from the tech giants director of monetization, began plotting the downfall of this website shortly after the 2016 election. The group sought to strike at Breitbart News revenue by kicking the site off Googles market-dominating ad services. Although their efforts ultimately failed, the discussion featured senior Google employees speaking frankly about their reasons for targeting the site. These included unfounded allegations of hate speech and fake news. In the leaked emails, Google employee Richard Zippel advised a fellow employee that Google would act against Breitbart...

    A new Android app has launched with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam. No, this is not a joke. The app, Smart Pakem, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold misguided beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.

    Newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MY) vowed to "mete out sweet revenge" in response to Donald Trump Jr. sharing a meme predicting that if her socialist views are implemented Americans would end up eating their dogs. "He may think he's clever mocking me," Ocasio-Cortez said, "but in another month I'll have the subpoena power I need to make his life a living Hell. On the specific topic of eating dogs, though, Junior is overlooking the positive impact that would have on mitigating global warming. So really, the joke is on him." In related news, Google advised journalist John Stossel that...

    In exchange for free mails, would you let your postman open your letters, read them, and insert ads related to their contents? This is a common analogy for Gmail’s model. The privacy implications of using Gmail actually go much farther than that, because Gmail is not only your postman (with Gmail), it also owns your car ( your web browser), your address book (with Search), your TV (with YouTube), it’s a great land owner (with AdSense)… And there are many reasons not to trust Google, especially with your privacy. Migrating away from any email service, like changing addresses in...

    Fifteen years ago in California, a tall technology geek named Steve Mushero started writing a book that predicted the American dream might soon be found only in China. Before long, Mr. Mushero moved himself to Shanghai and launched a firm that Amazon.com Inc. and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. certified as a partner to serve the worlds biggest internet market. These days, the tech pioneer has hit a wall. Hes heading back to Silicon Valley where he sees deeper demand for his know-how in cloud computing. The futures not here, said the 52-year-old.
