Is the Great Google Too Great?

Redmond Channel Partner magazine, written for Microsoft resellers (some partners consider this word a slur but they do, in fact, resell software), has a newsletter written by Lee Pender. I love Lee's stuff, except when it sinks in how much better his is than mine!

Recently, Lee tackled Google, asking if Google knows too much about us and is using this information inappropriately.

In fact, forget the Patriot Act, the NSA and the CIA. If Google ran U.S. national security, they would have found Osama bin Laden surfing for girlie pictures in Bora Bora!

Read Pender's views and highly refined writing here.
