I Spy with My Little Google… By Brian Simpson
Here I was using Goooooooogle Chrome with gay abandon, my balding scalp’s remain hair flowing in the IT breeze, and then there is this news:
“Google has come under fire for many questionable actions as of late — and the startling revelation that their widely used web browser, Google Chrome, is scanning personal computers around the world is nothing short of infuriating for its users. Big Brother is here — and countless numbers of people have invited this authoritarian presence (in one form or another) while being none the wiser. Indeed, some of the world’s largest corporations (like Google and Amazon) are continuing to find new ways to invade user privacy. In addition to a spying web browser, devices like Google Home and the Amazon Echo (and Alexa) are going places where the prying eyes of corporate interests have never gone before.
Worse still, they’ve convinced us to willingly purchase these devices and place them in our homes. People are actually paying for the “privilege” of being spied on — all the while turning a blind eye to the total invasion of privacy for the sake of “convenience” and keeping up with the Jones’. Google Chrome has become the trendy browser of choice, but not without a cost to users. A shocking report recently revealed that a series of “updates” to Chrome gave it the ability to scan all the files on Windows computers. It may be the browser so-called security pros suggest, but as it turns out, Chrome’s security blanket may just be a ruse so they can take your information for themselves.”
Oh no! Soon they will discover that it was not Russia, but Uncle Len in his shed who stole the US election, lock, stock and smoking barrels. He keeps it in his back pocket, and takes it out periodically to gloat over, while waiting for Trumpet and Vlad the lad to nuke each other. Naughty Uncle Len. Who would have thought that an alcoholic bum would be so politically powerful? Politics really is the art of deception.
