    I'll never look at Google the same way again...

    But that doesn't mean I won't stop using it.

    I just watched this video I found while browsing a round a tech blog: YouTube - The Beast File: Google ('HUNGRY BEAST', ABC TV)

    It highlighted somethings I knew, like its ad policy and its motto, and other things I didn't know, like the fact that some of the companies it has bought are DNA research firms and health care related companies.

    Watch the video and share your opinions, warning though, it's a little creepy.

    I have just watched the video and I must say that it's quite obvious that Google is the favorite search engine cause many people use it around the world and besides that it actually stores records on what you look at online so if you look at something that is unappropriate they would know, that's just crazy and ridiculous cause the things that we do now are being shown to Google. It also tells me that Google wants access to your health records and DNA that's something that should be private and Google shouldn't interfere with our lives cause then people would know a lot about us and could do something that is terribly wrong. I also can't believe that Google wants to follow your friendship cause that's a way that should be kept to only ourselves not something that Google should know about. Google does this cause it's in the advertising bussiness. The last thing I must say is that I will not be looking at Google the same way as well due to the fact that I'm knowing so much about Google and the processes that they take.

    i just saw the video as well and i dont see why they are involved in DNA that has nothing to do with internet which is what i thought google was only involved in.
    And them watching everything is really creepy its like there trying to be like big brother
    which is something no one wants.

    It makes me wonder what google will be like in 10 years if they get there way with stuff.

    Yeah, I kinda like Yahoo. Google is cool too though.

    But that video makes Google sound like one of my old creepy stalkers, who dig through your trash for pieces of your hair.

    Or like the Umbrella corp. (Resident Evil) who owns and is behind everything.

    Either way, nobody should be all up in your business or have that much power.
