Wonderful missive from T.T. O’Brien on Google and Facebook, trackers and stalkers.
Google is tracking you. No. Not tracking. Stalking. Facebook, too. Is that a good thing? It is for Google and Facebook and any entity that gathers personal data to sell to others. Google wants you to use their search engine because that’s where the money is. Google gives away a growing variety of apps so you can view videos, manage email, work on documents, and perform other tasks– absolutely free.
There is no such thing as a free lunch. Somebody pays.
