Larry is lying his butt off. Everyone who denies involvement, is deeply involved. Google has notorious spying/collecting issues in from the past...they're involved.

And yes apples involved too, they're just as bad as google.

So, in other words, if I came to you and accused you of stealing my phone, or anything w/ value, and denied it, but of course I wouldn't do a such thing, I'm lying? That's pretty much what you're saying.

Hash just watch. It'll come out, and this isn't to rag on google either. We're gonna be shocked at just how many companies are involved.

Actually, there's a small part of me that says he's sincere.
Google did try to take away National Security Letters (information requests with a gag order). They failed, but they tried.
It's in Google's best interests to make sure that its users' information is private. Otherwise, people stop using Google services, stop seeing Google ads, and Google stops making money.

Yes, Larry is lying his butt off. Google themselves publish a report that says how many times they have responded to subpoenas for data. The FISA court order is a subpoena, so Google has by its OWN admission provided data pursuant to the subpoenas.

Exactly. Denial is often the first line of defense. This will also have an impact on glass.

Subpoena's are limited in scope pursuant to the specifics of a case. What PRISM is/was is an entirely different animal.
And yes, Google has always been forthcoming letting people know just what authorities have been asking of them.

Are you trying to be smart by bending truth Mr. Page? I thought you are better than Schmidt, but seems like you are as evil as your mentor. How can we trust your words for transparency when in the same speech you are blatantly lying about Google's involvement with the Govt.????
