F*ck You, Google [Rant]

by on Feb.12, 2010, under Ads, Bad Valentine, bing, Buzz, dash, Display, Google, Hd, Home Automation, Isp, mid, Os, Politics, Pr, pre, Privacy, Pro, ps, Rant, Rc, Reader, Real, Red, Rf, safety, Scary, Social Networks, Space, star, Tent, third, time, Ui, Up, usb

I use my private Gmail account to email my boyfriend and my mother. There’s a BIG drop-off between them and my other “most frequent” contacts. You know who my third most frequent contact is. My abusive ex-husband. Which is why it’s SO EXCITING, Google, that you AUTOMATICALLY allowed all my most frequent contacts access to my Reader, including all the comments I’ve made on Reader items, usually shared with my boyfriend, who I had NO REASON to hide my current location or workplace from, and never did. My other most frequent contacts? Other friends of Flint’s. Oh, also, people who email my ANONYMOUS blog account, which gets forwarded to my personal account. They are frequent contacts as well. Most of them, they are nice people. Some of them are probably nice but a little unbalanced and scary. A minority of them – but the minority that emails me the most, thus becoming FREQUENT – are psychotic men who think I deserve to be raped because I keep a blog about how I do not deserve to be raped, and this apparently causes the Hulk rage. I can’t block these people, because I never made a Google profile or Buzz profile, due to privacy concerns (apparently and resoundingly founded!). Which doesn’t matter anyway, because every time I do block them, they are following me again in an hour. I’m hoping that they, like me, do not realize and are not intentionally following me, but that’s the optimistic half of the glass. My pessimistic half is of the abyss, and it is staring back at you with a redolent stink-eye. Oh, yes, I suppose I could opt out of Buzz – which I did when it was introduced, though that apparently has no effect on whether or not I am now using Buzz – but as soon as I did that, all sorts of new people were following me on my Reader! People I couldn’t block, because I am not on Buzz! Fuck you, Google. My privacy concerns are not trite. They are linked to my actual physical safety, and I will now have to spend the next few days maintaining that safety by continually knocking down followers as they pop up. A few days is how long I expect it will take before you either knock this shit off, or I delete every Google account I have ever had and use Bing out of fucking spite. Fuck you, Google. You have destroyed over ten years of my goodwill and adoration, just so you could try and out-MySpace MySpace. Harriet Jacobs is the nom de plume of the author of Fugitivus . She’s a mid-twenties white girl living in the Midwest, working at a non-profit that assists families and deals with a lot of racial politics. Harriet has had a fucked-up life, and Fugitivus —fugitive—is her space to talk, where the fucked-up people who did the fucked-up things couldn’t find her and be creepy. Bad Valentine is our own special take on the beauty—and awkwardness—of geek love.

Sony’s Interior Walls Are Slowly Coming Down [Sony]

Sony’s problem wasn’t just that its right hand didn’t know what its left hand was doing, it was that its right index finger didn’t even know that its right thumb belonged on the same hand. But they’re changing. Slowly. Laptop Mag points to this interview that shows that indeed, different divisions are merging and acknowledging each other’s presence. VAIO is now under the PlayStation, Walkman and Reader group. VAIO notebooks are going to use PSN for movies and TV shows. Which is a step in the right direction, but turning a ship this size is like a group of ants trying to move a dumpster. [ Laptop Mag ]
