Thats because Google will have raped everyones info.
Literally indexed all data.

sorry you been raped in the past! But at this point, any corporate use your data for commercial purpose. Anyways I like Google better than Microsoft, but slowly it's becoming the other way around. I am a citizen who only care about myself! So if anyone does anything to make it better for cheaper or affordable cost, count me in, otherwise middle finger to anyone that steps in my way!

actually I work in enterprise security, my personal data is not really out in the web.
I even know which data brokers have my data and I have stopped them from sharing it.

My android phone has donkey guard installed, every good app cannot get my data, the same can be said for every app on my phone too :)

Microsoft are a much better company when it comes to data privacy, google and facebook etc.. all take liberties with this data.

My point is that, when you can't compete, you become a better company to get customers and that's exactly what microsoft doing. In the past Google was better when microsoft was the dominant. Either way they all want your money.

R.I.P in peace Internet

But seriously, the way the headline sums it up makes it out of context from what the guy actually meant.

Tyler Durden2383d ago

Hate to be "that guy" but R.I.P stand for Rest In Peace. No need to add it at the end. Just trying to save you from future embarrassments.

Not sure if you're being ironic, but "RIP in peace" is a common meme

NarooN2383d ago

Haha I'm not embarrassed -- as Chard pointed out, it's a common meme nowadays. Just a silly little intentional deconstruction of the language.
