Google CEO: We Stop Just Short of Creepy

Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google, has described his company’s policy: “Google policy is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

Schmidt was talking to The Atlantic about the possibility of a Google implant – a chip under your skin that would track you and provide easy web access. That, Schmidt said, was probably over ‘the creepy line’.

However, he followed that by saying: “With your permission you give us more information about you, about your friends, and we can improve the quality of our searches. We don’t need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.”

Some might argue that that is over the line too but Google will only read your mind “with your permission”, so that’s a relief.

OK, so this isn't creepy? Eric Schmidt, the verminous CEO of the NSA- and CIA-run Google, admitting that they know what you're thinking about? I guess it's only creepy if you're like me, and would rather use a search engine, Startpage, that doesn't track and store everything you do on their properties. It's a matter of record that the CIA funded the creation of Google through a contract with In-Q-Tel. The two worms that ostensibly created Google get free parking for their jumbo jet on NASA grounds in California. Google is the online domestic surveillance arm of the federal government, plain and simple. If Google knows where you are, where you've been and what you're thinking, then the government does as well. And this creep Schmidt doesn't think that's creepy? But he'll eventually wind up in a FEMA camp just like the rest of us. When there are no more people using the Internet, there will no longer be a need for Google to have a CEO. See you behind the razor wire, Eric!
