    I just got this on my email and this is quite shocking! Google doesn't only target SEOs and blackhat activity, but other stuff as well!

    Just watch the video!

    Why would they not? If you do not want Google to track you, don't use it. If I was in charge of a site like this, it is a great business opportunity to figure out what people are doing/talking about. Honestly, if you do not unplug your mic or turn your webcam at a blank wall after every use, then you are not taking privacy seriously.

    Privacy is important, but there is a but to this. It's because they track your activity that they can sell you what you want. That's the reality of it.
    NO business has ever survived by NOT knowing what their visitors want.

    Because it is illegal to do so without your knowledge.

    That assumes you know about it.

    And you 'd be on a cell next to Bieber. You 'd have a great chance listening to people there, especially on bathing time.

    That's not really a google fault, it's clearly a malicious website using a exploit of a non-tought-thru feature.

    Does anything actually surprise anyone anymore though? On the IT front? All I know is they have better computers than I do...

    Thanks for sharing.

    It's good to know this sought of information. it makes me realize that even if I have my smart phone off, there's the possiblity that it can be track or recorded with the advance in technology. So the more valuable the information, than more cautious, I need to be?

    Does the video still work? All I get is this:
    "502. That's an error.The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.
    Please try again in 30 seconds. That's all we know."

    Edit: It's working now!

    They are trying to make Real Life Terminator Machines.
    Word is they are making a skin type that is very close to human skin and due for launch in year 2025 we will actually be able to purchase a real male or female robot that can drive us around, pick up our kids and be our friend.
