Orwell was right......

Okay, here's a reallly bad idea. Store ALL of your personal and private information on a coporate server.

There's an article on MSN this morning talking about how Google is trying to develope some sort "GDrive". This would take all of the information on your personal computer's hard drive.....cookies, bookmarks, emails....everything....and store it to Google servers.

Anyone besides me see the danger in this little scenario? Are we really so complacent as a society, so lax in protecting our own freedoms that anyone would really take advantage of this? Especially with the Patriot Act in place. What's to stop the federal government from subpeoning Google and making them give full access to all data stored to the FBI or some such nonsense....for the good of National Security, of course. ( Kind of like them looking at peoples library records....for National Security *wink wink*)

Wow....do I sound like a conspiracy theorist or what? Somebody better get me some aluminum foil......

You make a good point, dear. However, to play devil's advocate, Google has been fighting against the federal government about disclosing information. So you have to give Google at least a little credit for trying to provide a service and trying to keep the government's filthy little paws off the information.

This is true...however, you can fight, it just doesn't mean you will win. And there's the scary possibility of someone just hacking their way in...although I'm sure Google would put the best security measures in place. Just sounds a little iffy to me.

You are referring to 1984 are you not? "Big Brother is watching you!"

Just needed to make sure for sanity sake.

Totally an obscure literary reference...1984 all the way.
