Privacy policies are one of the most hated things on the Internet. They are constantly misunderstood, and made the scapegoats for many different problems that may not be related. They are also the hiding place...

Google, professional, very cutting edge & private. I especially like that eventually it could even tell you if you are going to be late for a meeting. Wow that is just an amazing thing.
I really like how Google is thinking & where they are planning to go. This is literally the tip of the iceberg, & I can't wait to see what else they have up their sleeve.

You hit on an important reason on why google will be able to pull this off while other companies may not. "We tend to trust Google". They have stuck decently well to their "do no evil" philosophy, lobbied for our freedoms, and have a pretty open culture.. all while having no major setbacks in safeguarding our information.. which they have a ton of. They would be able to pull this maneuver with less fuss than MS, Apple, or Obama.
I say go for it. They already have years worth of internet information on us, lets put it to good use.

Yes Google has lot of potential. But when it come making money all companies are same. They don't bother much about their philosophy. this what i understand from my experience. Google also has no exception. Even though they say "do no evil" they will become evil once they see the money. So we can not say this company is good that company is bad.

Google's market cap has grown from a startup to $185 billion in about 25 years. How big do you expect them to have to grow before it "sees the money"?
Seems extremely cynical to expect Larry and Sergey to completely change how they do business even though they haven't yet.

what he said.
apparently billions and billions a quarter is no longer "seeing the money" lol

You did not get my point. What I mean is even though they have billions of money, if they wants to capture rivals market share then they will not stick to their "do no evil" philosophy. All companies are same on this matter.

i still dont get your point.
Google is a SEARCH company. Their closest rival is Bing. waaaaay waaaaaay waaaaaaaaaaay behind google. They ARE the market share already.
You obviously have no idea about google or anything they do if u seriously think that. Please go do actual research.

You don't get my point. Google has captured rival market share in Search, webmail, mobile platform, and even social to an extent. Every time, it has captured that market through quality, speed, and cost of the product. Again, it is extremely cynical to assume that Google would change this strategy which has worked so well throughout the company's existence.
The most evil thing that Google does to capture rival market share is to undercut the competition by offering services or products for free. And, that's only evil by corporate standards, certainly not by user standards.
