Meet Google, The Big G! The noun that quickly became a verb and before we knew it had found its way into our dictionaries. The world’s most favorite search engine, and the company whose motto is “Don’t be evil“. But has it ever occured to you that Google could be a Beast? Meet Google the beast, the hungry beast. I found this very scary video on YouTube that describes Google as a Hungry Beast. This video basically tells us how — “Google has become a self aware entity and since then it has been pretending that it isn’t, slowly taking over every sector of the digital and real world until the right moment where it can enslave/slaughter humanity. Things become even scarier if we consider the fact that, they (Google) are usually really good at what they do!” It’s no wonder why Intel’s CEO called Google as — “A Company on Steroids, with a finger in every industry“!
However, I think its just quid pro quo. I am often frustrated by the failure of people to understand that nothing is ever free and when you use Google’s services, you must expect to pay for it in some way. If you don’t expect that, then you are both selfish for wanting both free and high quality service and stupid for thinking that you’d get it from a private company. Any information about yourself that you give them is entirely at your discretion. Also undoubtedly, many lawsuits that Google faces are from people trying to get easy money.You get access to tons of free (no monetary cost) awesome services or products and Google get some info about you. Until Google abuses their access to information, I plan to keep using their products.
On another hand, the fact that Google owns Youtube, as this video points out, and this video hasn’t been removed from YouTube is proof that Google is not as evil as people say they are. Evil destroys all dissent — even those normal people would see as outlandish. Even our most ‘benevolent’ companies typically ban someone for continually saying negative things of their product on their sites. A search engine that expanded into multiple fields which makes profits by ad revenue, doesn’t make a company evil.
I would actually say that – “stop whining and welcome to the internet“! The trick perhaps is to surf the internet not expecting full privacy. However, if you want to surf illegal stuff, use your neighbor’s WiFi!
