The fears of Google overtaking the world are not new. In an era when information translates to money and power, the one with information rules. Now, who has more stored personal information and potential access to it than Google. Personalized search, targeted ad delivery, ads in email, experiments to track usage of TV programs, photographs of every inch of the Earth etc. etc – it’s all there in the Google world.
There is a brilliant video at Youtube “Master Plan – About the power of Google” which asks a very pertinent question – Does Google Really Care About Our Privacy? The video is beautifully executed and portrays Google as an ominous and sinister entity with a plan since its inception.
However, I was not aware that Google is undertaking research in the fields of biotechnology and genetics. Watch the video here.
