Blame Your Friendless Miscreant?
If there were no idiot tendency terrorist types ready to try to blow anyone and everyone to bits there would be no need for any data tracking activity, but sadly this is not the case. Even more sad many of the sados succeed in killing.
I am not thinking just the Middle East variety of sad sick crud, there have been too many others, Baader Meinhof, the Angry Brigade, Timothy Mcveigh you might even add in the Westboro Baptists while you are at along with far, far too many other space and asset wasters. We can all make our own lists of those whose desire is not to improve the lot of anyone or anything by their wanton killing.
I am sure that these headlines about such product developments keep devices selling well, that is the intention after all. Frankly any security department that deep tracks those with no relationship to the would be killers is plain stupid. A moment's thought by them as much as by anyone else should show this to be true. Perhaps by not sending images by email, not using any of these 'no value to me devices' I will stand out as a-typical. if that's the case so be it but my profile will be as boring as hell anyway. The Google machine will have a thin time going through my e-mail as I do not use Google mail, but then I do not need a 'free' e-mail service paid for by the association of adverts with supposed interests.
I use Google search since it is the only one that can locate anything useful. Other so called search engines simply list second rate alternative search lists sending me nuts going through endless no hope layers of results, what I call the 'don't-find-em-factor'. We are at least free to make our own choices - for the moment. If you find your needs satisfied by alternatives great for you. I am sure Rupert Murdock will be pleased for you, he is the one who ran 'hackers to go' and does not configure his web sites correctly! But, heck if you fall for his line, you really will fall for anything.
Just a little balance and proportionality might be useful
