Google Sucks!!



Breaking News:

Google lost yet another of its fan a few moments back.


Google Search ruled the search engines for quite sometime. MSN, Yahoo!, Altavista, Ask etc. tried giving some competition but by now Google had become synonymous to Search Engine. Then Google launched Gmail, e-mail service with 1GB - something no body had thought of at that time. Yahoo and Rediff lost their share. As a reaction to this, Yahoo raised mailbox sizes to 100 MB and Rediff made it 1GB. Note that Hotmail was still offering 2MB mailboxes at this time. Gmail added another funda of ever increasing mailbox sizes and in very short time, it reached 2GB mark(As on date Gmail provides more than 6GB space in mailboxes). Then came Google News - collection of news articles from various news portals compiled under appropriate headings. Sites like Rediff, Yahoo and Indiatimes again lost some visitors. Then they bought Blogger and Picassa, promoted Orkut - All three of which being very popular and addictive services. They launched Google reader - yet another RSS reader with the provision of sharing the links with friends. Google Docs and Spreadsheet have as well started getting accepted by people and not to forget Google Earth, which became the craze of people sometime back. Other popular services include Google Videos, YouTube, Google Labs, Google Book Search etc. So overall Google seems to have done a very impressive work.

But there is something which I observed a few moments back and disliked it from bottom of my heart. While I was just browsing through my Orkut profile, I happened to click at the Orkut interface of my blog and what I found there was surprise!! All the posts that I have and I had deleted are still there. The posts I deleted more than months back are there in completion. The videos I even removed from YouTube are still there. The images I uploaded to my Blogger account with some particular post are still there. The next thing I did was to check the Google Reader for my blog and no surprises..each of those posts were there as well!!


Would anybody tell me what the hell is going on!!!
Why is Google spying into our lives!!
Even if I were to believe Google that these things are just to direct appropriate ads to me, I do not see a reason why Google should be keeping the data that even I have deleted. And this gives me a feeling that no matter whether you enable or disable saving and archiving of data/ search queries/results clicked/ chat records/.. , they always save it. If you enable, they provide you a view of that and if you disable, things happen against your wish and you dont get to know that.

Recently I remember reading an article on some research going on in the field of bio-medical field, do I interpret it as Google making virtual models of our personality in the cyber-world, who can predict with reasonable accuracy, the next thing we are going to do.
I know this might sound overtly skeptic at the moment but Doesn't it pose a threat on our identity??

And above all, is there any reason why this should not be considered as breaching into my privacy!

There are quite a few to choose from such as the Roberts stream 83i or

The new EP Pure Wet is a masterclass in experimental baselines and echoey, breathy vocals all underpinned
by varying funk and R&B-based rhythms. I know a lot more music now than before and have changed my tastes.
This was a live performance recorded by Dutch national television, 2 April 2011 (therefore it isn't fully cough free), by four pianists: Elisabeth Bergmann, Marcel Bergmann, Sandra van Veen, and Jeroen van Veen.

Try simple games and check how your internet connection is
and then move on play more games. Say you're doing as well at Chemistry, and as you are doing at Maths Extension 2, then instead of splitting your study time equally between the two (just because they are both worth 2 units each), you should spend more time on Extension 2, simply because it scales higher. For the purposes of this game, a "set" is at least three cards of equal value such as three Jacks or three fours and a "sequence" is made up of at least four cards that are of the same suit and run sequentially such as three, four, five, and six of spades.
