OT: Google Developing Eavesdropping Software
 
Our friends at Google are making it so they can use the built-in microphone of your computer, whenever they want.

uhhh, nice one Google, thanks...

First they put away the dealers,

keep our kids safe and off the street.

Then they put away the prostitutes,

keep married men cloistered at home.

Then they shooed away the bums,

then they beat and bashed the queers,

turned away asylum-seekers,

fed us suspicions and fears.

We didnīt raise our voice,

we didnīt make a fuss.

Itīs funny, there was no one left to notice

when they came for us.

Looks like witches are in season,

you better fly your flag and be aware

of anyone who might fit the description,

diversity is now our biggest fear.

Now with our conversations tapped

and our differences exposed,

how ya supposed to love your neighbor

with our minds and curtains closed?

We used to worry 'bout big brother,

now we got a big father and an even bigger muther.

And still you believe

this aristocracy gives a f*ck about you.

They put the mock in democracy

Nice cap.

So, we get around this... by turning off our microphones in the mixer? That was easy.

Yeah until you realize that's a software feature and anything can turn it back on.

I remember when google first started back in 99 or 00 and it was run by two college kids who seemed just like us, then it got popular and the corporations came calling and now it's just like anything else. It's like all these peoplec came out of the wood-work like "Here, you need help running this!" and those poor two guys that created it got pusehd to the side.

... there's plenty of free operating systems out there already. Unless this GoogleOS has gaming support, it will fail.
