Google and Dell

When I received the computers from Dell, I was surprised to find three programs from Google pre-installed. The Google Toolbar I kept, but the Google Desktop software and its supporting program I removed.

After removing the Google Desktop, I was immediately sent to Google’s Web site where I had to answer a question about why I was removing their software from my computer.

Personally it’s none of their business, but I was kind enough to answer and tell them.
Basically, I told them it was none of their business what was on my computer.

Now, I hear that Google and Dell are in cahoots with possibly delivering a Google OS on Dell computers. Well, you won’t find me buying a Dell again.

Just think, Google Desktop tells Google what’s on your computer when you do a search with their software. Just imagine the privacy concerns from a Google OS. Sorry, my clients are more important than some software that might want to send a copy of all my files to Google so they can stick their nose in it.

Google Desktop

Just the other day I was at the car dealership getting our Jeep Liberty worked on. I was walking through the showroom and found they now have a computer available to customers.

A lady was sitting at the computer googling on Google.

When I saw her later, I asked if she was googling on Google or Yahoogling on Yahoo.

Obviously I knew the answer, but it did get us talking about Google’s ‘big brother’ attitude and how they try to own everyone’s information.

She mentioned she formerly used Yahoo until she purchased a new computer and it came with the Google Toolbar. There upon I informed her to not use the Google Desktop for security reasons. Now, today we see many instances of people talking about the problems with Google’s ‘big brother’ attitude and how people don’t want Google sticking their nose in private matters.

Shame on Google for wanting to own our private information. Are the Google Boys part of ‘the beast’ mentioned in the Bible?
