Nobodyâs perfect in this big, whole world. The trait that is indicative of the previous description will be our relentless search for answers. Questions are always being raised, but not all the time are answers supplied. In this present time where technology is the glue that keeps everything together, our longing for answers has never been so simple. Enter Google - the biggest and strongest search engine giant in the world. All thanks to Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the power to deliver fast and reliable information on virtually any topic using our very own gadgets became a reality.
Like every underdog, Google started small and was subject to criticisms. Despite all that, Google stood firm up until today where it has reigned over another search giant. Itâs no surprise that Google will broaden its grasp in the technological community. As it grew bigger, its reach extended to other ventures and later got itself the most adaptable and less demanding of all available mobile operating systems - Android. Not later then, Google became involved in the smartphone industry.
Right now, Google is planning to try out yet another scheme that may no longer sound as pleasant as its previous projects were. This time around, the search giant is experimenting on a program that will allow for it to track you anywhere. In as simple an explanation as I can come up with, it appears to be a combination of Google Maps and the Google search engine.
How does it work?
News of Google conceding to certain global companies to post their advertisements up their search results page may have been the cause for this experiment. Google has the capacity to access user data through Android apps, Gmail, and the aforementioned Google Maps and the search engine itself. The apps you install, the information you feed in creating an account, and the coordinates you place in Maps are utilized by Google so it could have the corresponding market brought to your doorstep usually via email. So if you receive an ad selling you replacement parts for your tiring gadget in your inbox or spam folder, you now have an idea how it happened.
Most people see this action similar to what NSA is currently instigating in the United States. Well, maybe this is true but not all throughout. NSAâs objective is to look through every little fiber of all American states so it can supply the necessary protection its country will call for even to the extent of disproving ways. Googleâs objective is to sell and gain. Now tell me, is that desirable to you? I think not. You are still given the option to decline to ad offers. However, it doesnât give them the right to give away information about you no matter how far away it is from your personal life. Information is still information. Weâve entrusted them with such and they should cater to us with the same gravity.
