Google: OK, OK, we pinky promise not to suck Fitbit health data into the borg. Now will you approve the sale?


Re: We accept your conditions, just prove your honesty

Insurance would be my concern, if I had such a device.

Indeed. We all have seen the reports of Googles "insight" into peoples health status, behaviour, questions, and concerns. It's true that competitors are already "in the health market". Then again, Google has already shown (and shared TBH) its aspirations to exploit healthcare much, much further than just "counting steps". Especially in environments where healthcare is for sale (now or in the very near future) Googles strategists might be smirking excessively. After all, the only purpose of your health has, is for somebody else to make money with it...
