...I see a few bloggers shifting edifices.
I'm not particularly concerned, as yet. I regard Google as a corporation fundamentally cowardly; their bowing to countries like China demonstrates this. But I don't regard them as stupid, and regard it as beyond them at this point in time to utilize their policies against their users.
Their policy changes are, while concerning, in line with what Google representatives have said about privacy; in short, they regard it as an outdated concept which will soon be extinct.
We'll see, is all I have to say about that. In the meantime, I expect Google's cowardice and intelligence to mean nothing substantial will come of this, yet.
