Pretty rich of the government to sue for breaching the right to privacy... Can't wait to sign on to this one. I wouldn't doubt that one day they will try to sell your own data back to you ('pay us $500 and we will scrub your data from our servers'). About time So who gets the money if google was to lose the lawsuit

Nowadays, PRIVACY is reduced to an ILLUSION! Leave Google alone ,how did you know. Android forever Casual racism from google there I'm not surprised :) I want to know about this database Google has compiled of everyone’s fetish preferences. What is the commercial application here? Is there a pornography cabal amassing power in the deep state? So. Many. Questions!

This isn’t even surprising. A few thoughts: Are google employees and executives similarly tracked or are they exempted? How is our data monetized? What countries get our data? Is there a file on me, friends and family somewhere in China? What happens to our information? Google is asshoe! weirdbr Did you hear about this?

Good. So all along they where tracking all my porn from incognito mode? When it was meant to be incognito So my porn history isn't safe🤔 Google has escaped notice because of Zuck's struggles but they are in many ways worse given the span of their product range. Fuck google Google is internet cancer - Use DuckDuckGo instead

How does your mind deceive you? ' Free yourself' your mind is obsessed with what other minds are thinking (mind reading). Your mind is horribly competitive and insecure, comparing you to the neighbors, co-workers, friends..
