re: Google $22.5 Million FTC Fine Has No Teeth
Why should Google be fined?
I agree that Privacy is important.
These points seemed to keep being forgotten:
1. The complaints regard primarily Opt-In Google Services
2. Any install from Google and especially Opt-In Services are accompanied by an obvious and clear notice by Google saying in effect " Please read this, it is important ! This is not your normal YADA, YADA !"
3. I believe the BIGGER problem is that companies need to listen much better to users (clients) because many user interfaces still, in the infamous Jobs critique - "Suck". (including Apples).
And I do think using technology to try and glean this information is less than effective. BETTER that top executives of companies get down from their ivory towers, once a day, and visit Customer Service and Tech Support and ask a simple Questions: What are customers saying today? What are they complaining about? This IS useful information!
PRESS: Pick the right targets please. And hopefully the clueless government blokes (all over the world) will stay out of what they donG«÷t understand.
