Google vs MS – From Frying Pan Into The FireJuly 8, 2009 at 2:19 pm | Posted in Saving the USA | Leave a comment

I’ve worked professionally with Microsoft since the first PC 26 years ago. Like IBM in the days prior, it has been a love/hate relationship – can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em. But at least I understand their goals, strategies, and methods.
Some methods have been less than admirable or truly customer-satisfaction oriented. For instance, their strong-arm tactics over the years to force computer manufacturers to shove new operating systems down our throats were reprehensible. And, it finally backfired with the infamous Vista.
But I never have had a concern with them in regards to my privacy. Admittedly, in an effort to improve software products and prevent software theft, Microsoft has progressed over the years into gathering more information from my computer. But it had a limit, and operated under well-published rules. The information wasn’t privacy-invading, and wasn’t sold to the highest bidder to rake in advertising dollars from THE WORLD.
Not so with Google, which has had a strategy since day one of wanting to know everything I do with my computer; install spyware tools with drivers from every type of device known to man, within my computer and otherwise, from video boards to popular software (Adobe Reader) to printers to cameras. I know this, because I daily ask clients, “Did you want Google Toolbar installed here?” and they always answer, “I don’t even know how it got on my computer!” Or maybe I’ll find it happened during gmail set up, or maybe they have Chrome, Google’s browser, and don’t know how it got there. Over the years, Google’s search engine algorithms have increasingly sided not only toward politically-correct content, but rising to the top, those people who do business with Google.
Now enter more invasion of your privacy. Google plans to release an operating system to replace Microsoft Windows or Vista. While it’s admirable that someone has the resources and willpower to take on Microsoft on their own turf, there is no way I want Google running my computer. I might as well invite them into my bathroom and into my brain. There will be nothing I do or think that they won’t know about me. And, what they know will be sold to others without my consent. Let’s stop this giant in it’s tracks – resist!
