These are the times and discussions where I truly miss Amanfrommars. He would have the wisdom and guidance to lead us forward through this pandemic.

Perhaps they should restrict that domain access to only coalition members. That should cut down on piracy and serve their purpose. Better yet, maybe they can band together and build their own internet so none of those beastly sharers and pirates can get to legitimate music.
Serves em right!
I'm just not hip or current enough.. but why the *uck is this even news? Yes, it will indeed change my life, as will the fact that the weather turned a little cooler here today.
Nothing like a free press release for the boys driving the Hershey Highway to the chocolate factory... yay!!!! Made my day.
Google (and anyone else collecting this without permission) should be forced to remove all information collected without permission, and start over.
Any type of data collection that involves this level of information that was collected by a private citizen would be grounds for a stalking complaint in many localities.
Why are they different? Not that anything will change, but this really sucks.
At one time - IBM was the business model every aspired to. Hell I built my career on mainframes and as/400, iseries, i5, system i or whatever the hell it's called rthis week.
Their thinking seems to be build a better mousetrap - then don't use it because now what do we do with all that leftover cheese? and how the hell do we justify keeping the cats around? and God help the pest control business.
They went from a company that stood for excellence and execution to one with pockets of competence with short-sighted leadership - ship of fools if you will. Just hope they figure out a means to stay relevant for awhile... still polishing up some other skill sets that show some dynamic thinking for the future.
Perhaps.... the best punishment of all would be to force Google to expunge all data it collected under the Street View program and start over again. That way, there would be no question about what is being collected, where and how, and would probably be more of a real punishment than anything else.
It'll never happen but it is an entertaining thought.
