and you have never shared where you are on Facebook or anything like that huh, come on dude. You all are paranoid. You're only one person out of billions, like they are going to single you out and track you down. Seriously go live under a rock if you are that concerned with privacy

My next phone might be one which operates on Windows. Why do Google need to make more money? Just to get richer and richer. Not even 2 months after the changing of the privacy policy of googles searches they come up with another thing just for advertising.

google should focus on cancelation of unwanted background noise not recording it.

Why do you req. to record every users sound for a 50 sec commercial record of your employees.

Love Google, love Android, but if this were ever to go into practice I'm jumping ship.
