Maybe we need some fresh thinkers in Washington and the Justice dept who can see and think long term. Maybe there should be a limit on just how much information a corporation can gather about an entity. What MSFT did to get in hot water and violate various laws seems like peanuts compared to what Google can do with the mass of personal data they continue to assemble.
To some extent there is no one to blame but the person in the mirror who got sucked in to using analytics and other Google tools to get the ball rolling. Any entity whose sole purpose is to just make more money now and in the future ought to be put in check at some point to protect the public welfare IMHO.
