It's not? There are people here who seem to think they have a right to privacy in "truly public" places like parks, malls etc.
You mean you don't want people public actions in a public place to be recorded? Forget about "being on the cards". We already have that power.
So...if congress feels like it they have the legal power to call a person because they like the color of his tie? No appeal? No justification? No legal redress? I find that difficult to believe.
Is Google even legally obligated to respond? Why? The product hasn't even been released yet. And as far as I know they're not breaking any laws. So why can't they tell Congress to go fuck themselves? Reply by July 14th...or what?
Lol wut? Are you high?
As a content producer, it's my right to block your client if you refuse to see the ads I put up. If you want my content, watching ads is my price. Otherwise don't consume what I put out.
Simple no? I don't know what you're getting so worked up over.
I'm an Indian. It seems that we like to be treated like children. There's no concept of "personal responsibility". If someone riots it's because they were "provoked". Not because they made the choice to go and riot!
It's all about ownership. Even though the Indian Constitution practically forces it on them, Indians are terrified of true freedom. They want to behave irresponsibly and at the same time blame someone else for "provoking" them.
The Internet has just brought this attitude to the fore. I sincerely hope Indians will grow up and behave like adults.
1. Instant video streaming to my private youtube channel will preserve everything. So destroying my glasses will just make things worse for them.
2. It's far easier for other people to activate recording via google glass without drawing attention to themselves. The police can pick out people who are recording with cell phone cameras. Not with this.
As I live in a country where corruption is rampant and where police officials openly ask for bribes and misbehave with people, I can't wait for thousands of people to be wearing these babies all the time.
It's about time we started watching our government publicly. This will revolutionize things, make no mistake.
At least you agree that Google would be dumb to sell the data to anyone else.
So...what harm do you fear from Google having that data?
Dude...have some faith
I give the benefit of the doubt first. Only after I have concrete proof that Google is selling my data will I lose that trust. And like I said, there's no need for Google to earn a few extra pennies by selling my data to third parties. They're doing just fine as of now.
It's absurd. They must literally get hundreds of thousands of emails everyday. It's unrealistic to expect them to reply personally to all of them. Looks like Germany is trying to shut down the entire web.
Also, the law reads in such a way that the provider of any web service has to do this. I run my private blog. So now I'm legally obligated to respond to every asshole who sends me hate mail with a question at the end?
Leave...the fucking Internet...alone.
I run a private blog. It's a free service. This now means I'm legally obligated to personally respond to every prick who mails me?
It's not a minor point because I trust Google not to give my data to anyone and not to use in a bad way. If that trust is broken people stop using their stuff. So they have a powerful business incentive to be good in this regard.
Oh sure, protest all you want. You merely don't have the right to "shove them down anyone's throat". Write a book, a poem, draw something, shout, hold placards or whatever you feel like. But you can't stop others from doing it. You can try and persuade them. Not force them to stop.
