Goddamn it, i want to keep google out of my life entirely, but now my employer uses gmail, so have to use it, and my employer put my first and last name on it: first.last@mycompany.com

To view my work calendar on my phone i have to add that account, so google knows my phone now too.

Even viewing a youtube video at work i noticed that they have me logged in to youtube (which google owns). if i log out, i can't read my email...

Google is the worst thing ever to happen to privacy.

Do you all remember this ? Google is likely over compensating for incidents like this.

I think Patrick they are hired mostly for their network of contacts. They still got colleagues and friends in the CIA, FBI, etc. and can use those contacts to help Google.

So they get hired for who they know, and not as much as far as what they know since it a political position within Google.

Just like defense industry contractors.

I wonder how much may it be sabotage. Perhaps they pushed to far the apolitical Google engineers who have been there very long.

How many DEI training and cultural events can they attend without snapping ? How many times can they tolerate the non-binary blue hairs antics at the office ?

Think of James Damore crowd.

And then think of those within that crowd who are a lot more political savvy or clever to not put themselves out there like Damore but engage in more sinister action without get caught ?

Damore is very, very smart. Look at where he graduated from (Univ of Illinois) and the degrees he earned like Physics. I bet he just "snapped". Think in context of Michael Douglas in Falling Down.

But the problem with Damore is he is not socially adept enough to get away with his agenda.

I bet you there are plenty remaining in Google who have same agenda, its that the non-binary blue hairs have not chased them out or realized who they are.

AND the manages and directors know they need them around for Google to sustain its legacy operations, and come up with new innovative product lines.

I have said this (and/or thought this) before, my dream career world is to work next to the Rin's, Rich Wick's and Patrick's if I had to tolerate working in an environment there where the dominant work culture is non binary blue hairs.

True, and that's typical of engineers, but he was extremely honest and sincere, and I admire that. It cost him a lot. He's an example of real virtue.

You know, that's a great market opportunity. There are probably a ton of great engineers who are sick to death of the anti-white anti-male and anti-hetero hatred. A company that explicitly forbids all that hatred in its charger would get a lot of talent. If I ever grow the memes big enough to hire people, I will do that.

how do you do that without attracting attention from DOJ Civil Rights division or EEOC ?

I guess you could market the company like a tech / engineering / coding version of Truth Social or Rumble ?

So that would be enough to lay down the law as far as what the company's foundation and culture is about.

Like some name it Liberty Labs or something , or Woke-Free Tech Zone.

Or you can dial it back some and make it presented more as an apolitical or neutral company that has a charter which does not subscribe to the Woke political antics.

Just trying to figure out how you market it like thinking how the Marines market itself or even the Peace Corps does.

I think the EEOC's own laws could be used to do this. Discrimination against white people is also illegal, in theory.

Google has been putting its thumb on the scale to help Democratic candidates win the presidency in the last four election cycles during which it censored Republicans, according to a right-leaning media watchdog.

The Media Research Center published a report alleging 41 instances of “election interference” by the search engine since 2008.

The MRC published a report accusing Google of having “utilized its power to help push to electoral victory the most liberal candidates…while targeting their opponents for censorship.”

Google’s Woke AI Wasn’t a Mistake. We Know. We Were There.

The world has been horrified—and amused—by the extreme ideological bent of Gemini, Google’s much-hyped new AI tool, which the company launched last month.

But Shaun Maguire, who was a partner at Google Ventures, the company’s investment wing, from 2016 until 2019, had a different reaction.

“I was not shocked at all,” he told The Free Press. “When the first Google Gemini photos popped up on my X feed, I thought to myself: Here we go again. And: Of course. Because I know Google well. Google Gemini’s failures revealed how broken Google’s culture is in such a visually obvious way to the world. But what happened was not a one-off incident. It was a symptom of a larger cultural phenomenon that has been taking over the company for years.”

You do realize this is a good thing?

Google has betrayed the nation by pretending to be an informational resource, and instead does everything they can to distort information, prevent people from finding it, censoring people, and promoting propaganda. I don't think they have enough diversity yet.

We can hope that their diversity hires drag down the quality of Google websites to the point where no one uses them. I think it's already happening to some degree.

There's no doubt.

Google email is installed on every Android phone, nobody uses it. Google Voice was installed on every Android phone, nobody used that. You could run Google voice on your computer, any device really, to make and receive phone calls - know anybody that does it?

YouTube was the UNDISPUTED KING of video, but they engaged in censorship, kicked off all the interesting people, pushed assholes like Rachael Maddow and Sean Hannity down everybody's throat, and censored actual creators, kept deleting videos - Rumble is going to replace them.

Still I've been grateful for Youtube from learning about trading puts and calls, to installing Ubuntu on a 2018 desktop computer, to being able to troubleshoot and fix my vehicle.

Sure, it's fine for anything not really important.

It's been a real, very intentional effort, to dismantle the propaganda system that is fucking us all, and YouTube has picked the side of keeping that in operation. Fuck them.

Many folks have complained recently about Israel’s use of AI to pick targets in Gaza. I mean, what could go wrong? Well, apparently angst toward Israel may be misplaced. They probably got it from us, since the U.S. developed that technology first. The New York Times yesterday ran a remarkable, non-paywalled story headlined, “In Ukraine, New American Technology Won the Day. Until It Got Overwhelmed.” Actually, Google did it. For nine million dollars.

Here’s how the genesis of our robot overlords was described in the article:

Six years ago, the Silicon Valley giant signed a small, $9 million contract to put the skills of a few of its most innovative developers to the task of building an artificial intelligence tool that would help the military detect potential targets on the battlefield using drone footage.

Why is that an issue now? Israel got lots of was stuff from the US - the F-35s and other warplanes, bombs. munitions, and tons of dollars.

But check out the conflict of interest statement, a screenshot of which you can see in the tweet below from Natalie Winters. It shows that Metabiota Inc. received funding from Google, one of the world's most powerful and corrupt corporate entities. ...

Keep in mind that Google, as Winters also points out, heavily censored the "lab leak" theory of COVID when it first started to circulate. Perhaps Google was trying to protect itself from being implicated in the bioweapon's development?

It turns out that Google has been a silent partner of Daszak and EcoHealth for the better part of 14 some-odd years at least. A 2010 study on bat flaviviruses lists both Daszak and EcoHealth vice president Jonathan Epstein as authors – and like the 2018 study mentioned above, this 2010 study thanks Google for funding it.

Yet another paper on henipavirus spillover that was published in 2014 shows the same authors and funding from Google, demonstrating a lengthy relationship between these entities. ...

"It's no secret that Google regularly collaborates with intelligence agencies," wrote another, referring to Jigsaw, Google's intelligence agency, citing a 2021 report from Zero Hedge.

"They are a known NSA subcontractor. They launched Google Earth using a CIA spy satellite network. Their executive suite's revolving door with DARPA is well known."

Hahaha... I just restart using my roku controller. It usually takes zero to four starts to get a vidya going and with that simple controller it's super fast too. Much faster than trying that with a web browser. I do the same for adds in the middle of videos. It's not so much that I don't ever want to watch an add it's that I don't want to watch an add from that company that helps support it. There are rumble channels I watch the adds.

Buried under the news from Google I/O this week is one of Google Cloud's biggest blunders ever: Google's Amazon Web Services competitor accidentally deleted a giant customer account for no reason. UniSuper, an Australian pension fund that manages $135 billion worth of funds and has 647,000 members, had its entire account wiped out at Google Cloud, including all its backups that were stored on the service. UniSuper thankfully had some backups with a different provider and was able to recover its data, but according to UniSuper's incident log, downtime started May 2, and a full restoration of services didn't happen until May 15.

That IT guy that decided on a third backup while using a non-Google provider should get a nice bonus.

I can apparently opt out but I received this email from googly:

"Your Android devices will soon join the Find My Device network

How it works
Devices in the network use Bluetooth to scan for nearby items. If other devices detect your items, they’ll securely send the locations where the items were detected to Find My Device. Your Android devices will do the same to help others find their offline items when detected nearby."

It even works if your device is off...
