---- Schmidt: Facebook Should Open Up Its Data To Google

Mr Schmidt, the air is mighty thin up where your ego resides, it's affecting your judgment on humility imo.
It's not facebooks data, it's my personal data, and you can't have it unless I WANT you to... kk?
It's no secret Google has a profile on all of us and desperately wants to add all data sources to it. I wonder if homeland security or the feds are cracking the whip on Schmidt to accumulate more data too.
Perhaps someone should pick up the cnet slack and track Mr Schmidt even more harshly, at least as relentlessly as Google does to all of us (impossible to avoid? almost).
Walkman, from your link:
Google remains under scrutiny by government agencies over data collected and shared via its "Street View" program
I can picture that scrutiny as being a few old dawgs sitting in a room discussing how they will get even more data while at the same time restoring public perception to "google is trustworthy". What's privacy when compared to profit anyway.
