Google Have Won An Eight Year Long Battle Against The Authors Guild Over Google Wanting Wanting To Scan More Than 20 Million Books From Libraries And Make Them Available On The Internet.
I Don’t Know The Full Details On What They Actually Want To Do With The Books And How People Are Going To View Them But This Seems A Good Idea, Making A These Books More Accessible.
However, I’ Not 100% With This Idea Because I Wouldn’t Like To Think Of The Library Becoming Obsolete And A Thing Of The Past Because Of The Word Wanting To Becoming Fast Pasted And Technological.
I Guess We’l See What Will Happen With This
Reading Around The Web Again And Came Across This Tweet By NBC News “NBC News has learned that under the post-9/11 Patriot Act, the government has been collecting records on every phone call made in the U.S”
This Topic Is VERY Interesting Because It’s Something We All Should Be Concerned About But At the Same Time Is There Much We Can Actually Do About The Situation. If They Were Doing This From 9/11 Without Any Permisson And We’re Only Finding Out Now Then What Else Are They Doing
Should We Really Be Surprised That The US Are “Spying” On Us? The Clues In The Name….U.S.A (United Spying Agency) Lol Poor Joke I Apologise. I Really Do.
But Anyway But To The Subject Matter, I Was Scrolling Through The BBC News Website A Few Days Ago (As You Do) And I Came Across A Article “Snowden leaks: Google ‘outraged’ at alleged NSA hacking” Now This Is Something In Which I Had Heard About Recently But Never Really Took Any Notice, So When I Saw The Article I Thought Why Not.
Anyway Alleged “Facts” From Article “NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily” Now This Should Be Ringing Alarm All Over The Place. A Common Phrase I Keep Hearing Is “If You’ve Got Nothing To Hide Then What’s The Problem” Or Something Along Those Lines. The Point Isn’t That I Or Anyone Else Have Something To Hide, It’s That Why Do They (They Being The NSA) Feel That They Have Some Sort Of Right To Be Snooping Around Information That Is Not Permitted For Them To Listen Or View.
Another “Fact” That Came Up Was That They “Monitored servers at 9 internet companies.” Some Including Facebook, Google, Skype, Apple and YouTube. Some Of These Just Sound Ridiculous, I Mean Come On What Sort Of Messages Or Information Did They Think They Can Gather From Facebook. A Deadly Birthday Message From Me To A Old Friend Of Mine Who I Haven’t Seen Since I Was 5? I Think Not.
As I Can See I Am Going Off Topic Again I Guess I Am Going To Leave This Blog On This Note….
No Matter What We Do Online( Yes Even You On Incognito ) & It Now Seems Even Our Phone Calls…They Will Know EVERYTHING.
