Google just became shamelessly terrifying – Notes & Errata by Mark Morford

But now it’s all getting so much uglier, and more disturbing. This is the gist few seem to understand about Google: Every time you use any Google product, from Gmail to YouTube, Drive to Google Maps, Calendar to Allo, it’s tracking you a thousand ways from Sunday, with the singular goal of turning it all around and using that fireball of personal data against you – that is, to coerce and manipulate you more ruthlessly, more precisely and more comprehensively than any advertising company in the history of the human species.But now, add in Pixel phone, a Google Home hub and scatter a bunch of Google Wi-fi hockey pucks throughout your house, and let voice-activated Google Assistant run them all? You might as well just give them your first born.
