Re: Big Problem No 1 ...... Exploiting Software Bugs is Too Big to Fail

You should be able to use the web without fear that a criminal or state-sponsored actor is exploiting software bugs to infect your computer, steal secrets or monitor your communications

I'd vote for that statement to be choice bullshit, of the same type as their Gmail "help" in which they explain that they will never allow a 3rd party to access your email, gently skipping over the fact that they themselves ARE that 3rd party.

It's a US company, operating under US law (and no other, as it has been trying to tell us) and thus exposed to a legal system that has all but destroyed any semblance of privacy protection (yes, yes, I know there is a lot of privacy theatre at the moment with state laws, but the problem is with federal law which overrides all of that). So thank you Google, but all you're really telling us is that you really want that NSA outsourcing job.
