  Google Wants Your Files, Will Inform China
Not content just helping you find what you need on the Internet, Google takes on your computer's desktop. The Google Desktop is your own private little Google server. It sits in the background, searching through your files and folders, indexing your incoming and outgoing email messages, listening in on your instant messenger chats, and browsing the Web right along with you. Just about anything you see and summarily forget, the Google Desktop sees and memorizes for you.

Now the question becomes, with Google's know communist co-ordination, will your desktop files be subject to communists agenda? Google allready bases its censorship decisons on guidance provided by Chinese government officials.

Google officials characterized the censorship concessions in China as an excruciating decision for a company that adopted "don't be evil" as a motto. But management believes it's a worthwhile sacrifice.

"We firmly believe, with our culture of innovation, Google can make meaningful and positive contributions to the already impressive pace of development in China," said Andrew McLaughlin, Google's senior policy counsel.

Now combine that snippet with the Mahamod cartoon controversy and you get a recipe for diaster. Will the new communists power reach the US? It allready has reached Microsoft in the US. Will we allow the culture of greed to override free-speech in search of teh allmighty dollar?

Will you trust Google not to tell anyone who asks what's going on on your pc? Will you be pre-emptivly banned from China courtsey of Google's desktop search?

Google says the update aims to make finding and sharing information even simpler, but I have to question whoose goals their accomplishing? Mine, or their search for dollars at my expense.
