The Latest On Google: Okay, now I'm officially confused.

First, Google told the .gov to go piss up a rope.

Then a judge announced he was going to order Google to fink.

Now he has apparently ordered them to only kinda-sorta fink, only not. Sort of. Which is good. Or bad. I'm not sure.

I'm guessing that someone in a black trenchcoat probably passed Der Judge a manila envelope containing his Google searches for the past year.

Along with a note: "These will be part of the stuff the Fed.gov gets.

Love,
Google"

You know, the first decent search engine that protects my privacy by having a data retention policy that removes all personally identifiable info from the search criteria and deletes that data so no grubby elastic clause arm of the federal overloads can seize it under false legal pretext, will end up getting all my business. Of course, I block ads, so I don't know how I'm gonna make that search engine any money.

Until then, I'll just use third party solutions and various obfuscation techniques for the searches on Semtex, child porn, and pseudoephedrine cook book recipes [/joke]

They can't issue a “National Security Letter” for something they don't have.

It's sad that SM has to actually note that he IS making a funny, else the JBT's coming kicking on his door.

It's a SHITE state of affairs.
