Google resisting the US govt. HAHA since when??

You do realise that Microsoft & Google are 2 of the biggest players within the Bilderberg Group, That is to say that absolutely nothing they have is off limits to the government or anyone else that benefits from making money for the fat cats!

you'd be suprise, company like Apple and Google would cooperate with NSA because of FISA, but helping NSA to un encrypt would suprise me a lot! And Microsoft is known to be Pro Ameriacn, which includes Politics because of Bill Gates!

As a good friend of mine said (although not sure if he was just repeating something he heard/read elsewhere)

"If Microsoft want to watch me masturbate, that's their choice."

A humorous anecdote that ignores the real issues at stake here, but still funny as all hell :P

This is why Microsoft made Xbox One with a mandatory Kinect instead of optional Kinect.
