Damn Privacy, Full Speed Ahead, Google

Google developing eavesdropping software that would allow them to listen in (literally) to your environment by the use of your computer's built-in microphone, reduce that noise to marketing pap and serve you up more targeted advertisements.

To which I say, goodbye Google, that is a day that I will never allow to happen on my machine. I don't care about more relevant ads, I care about Google invading my house to sample more of my life to try and sell more schlock to me. So, yeah, fuck you Google. No wonder people hate marketers, its because of crap like this (and because talentless assclowns like Ashlee Simpson get propelled by marketing wonks into "stars").
