Well, here's another way to look at this. Google as Peeping Tom.
Google, NASDAQ behemoth, whose share price closed on May 14 at $507.53 is caught peeping into private citizens' digital lives.
How different is this than the perv who, walking down the street, notices the blinds at 104 Main Street have a slat that is slightly askew. Walking a bit closer, the perv peeks through the small slit and enjoys a new world of-- shall we say, data.
These people need to be brought up short. But, alas, they seem to be very well connected politically. Eric Schmidt probably got to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom.
What chance do schlubs such as you and I have?
