re: Google's Risky Business
The problem I see with this article is you asume, risk and that there are privacy issues with all of googles new technologies. That isn't the case. Technology is in a state where the market is over saturated with new gadgets. I would liken it to Starbucks coffee shops. I like coffee and I stop by and get one from Starbucks coffee, but after that coffee I don't stop at the 20 other Starbucks shops I walk by on the way to work. I can admit that I own too much technology and can say that I live in the cyber world. I know people who are perinoid about buying things online or even opening up accounts on social websites. I make my money off of people like this. But as unsafe a world and computer environment that is out there, we all still strive and forge on. A lot of companies that were successful and inovative just a couple of decades ago couldn't make it today, you call it a risk, but people that don't take great risks aren't real inovators all great entrepreneurs. Most R&D shops won't give you a glimps into thier workshop to show you thier technology so you are talking about someone who has shared thier Idea with you and you are acting like a worried mother or a hater, in trying to look at how the project is going to fail before it even started. Google has a smart team and a lot of FU money that they can do whatever the F they like with. They decided to please the public and this is the way some tech reporters like to repay them for thier inovations. Thanks for the article.
