Warning: Don't Get This Google Product Ever
« on: June 10, 2017, 01:24:51 PM »
We were told about the thing below some years ago in the class by an ex google employee.

Her English was a bit broken. She told us to stay out of it. I think I already mentioned here that I heard her say  she felt her home gadgets were spying on her. But now when I saw that thing I understood she was talking about that thing in the link. She told us that a time will come when we will "public properties" in our own homes. Whatever she described seems to be the exact stuffs offered by this product. It may look convenient. It may become popular, but don't surrender your freedom to it no matter how much people try to shame you for not being "trendy". It happens with me all the time because I still don't use a smartphone. But again many in the elite groups don't either.

But of well, I don't think I need to say much about the product because Google already explains what it is:
1. Google Home. Voice-activated speaker.
Hands-free help from
the Google Assistant.

2. Google Home is powered by the Google Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. And with support for multiple users, it can distinguish your voice from others in your home so you get a more personalized experience. It?s your own Google, just for you.

3. Google Home can distinguish your voice from others in your home, so when you say ?call mom,? we?ll call your mom.

4. With your permission, Google Home will learn about you and retrieve your flight information, set alarms and timers, and even tell you about the traffic on your way to work.

5. Far-field microphones and industry-leading natural language processing ensure Google Home hears you reliably.

Do note that Google has turned into a control freak.

What you search for is already arranged monthly and annually by them through what they call "search engine updates" and it is usually targeted towards small sites. Big sites can use blackhat, yet remain on the top.

They can make you click adsense ads by hiding real info from you in the search results.

They can't fully control all the results. So now they have the red page of warning to make you think something you want to see has hackers and virus.

They have pretty much gained control over website owners dictating what they can write about. If you have an alternative view they can penalize you with the reason that you are misleading people.

Chrome does a lot of things without your permission. That's why, you don't come to know when it is updating.

Thanks for reading.
