Consumer group accuse Google of being data nonces
The questions over whether or not Google are evil is one that will continue to be debated endlessly, at least until The X Factor comes on at 7.30pm tonight. But over in the USA, someone is getting up off their ‘ass’ and doing something about it.
A shadowy group that call themselves Consumer Watchdog are very much of the opinion that Google are evil, going so far as to rent video advertising space in Times Square, New York City to tell anyone who’ll listen and look.
They’ve taken an interesting approach as well, casting Google head honcho Eric Schmidt as some kind of data paedophile, portraying him as an ice cream man who gives away free treats to the kids while running a seedy data harvesting operation in the back of the van.
