    Score for Google. This along with their handling of the China debacle is allowing me to put a little more faith back in them.

    It's rather mixed news, IMHO -- "Google's internal spy system was Chinese hacker target" <http://blogs.zdnet.com/Foremski/?p=1047>.

    *Slowly backs away from the Chrome download he was about to start*....Wow. I completely side with law enforcement 99.9% of the time, but this situation is a little ridiculous. I have a feeling this is going to make Google look really bad, and, with their Nexus experiment blowing up in their face right now, the privacy issue coming back to haunt them was the last thing they needed.

    I would probably still cut them SOME slack if they weren't being hypocritical and, like the article said, using the "rights" issue against China. I would expect this to be a huge thing if I lived anywhere else but the U.S. The people here will groan about it and make demands for change until either A: Some PR guy/gal comes out and makes a "feel good" statement to calm people down, or, B: American Idol is on again.
