It is strange that people are so up-in-arms about the government capturing metadata about their comms to (we're told) protect them but don't seem in the slightest bit bothered about a private company mining not just metadata but also content just to more effectively make money out of them ..
Next we need Google to reveal their definition of 'evil' - I suspect it may be slightly different to OED's ..
Most of google's services (books, music, tv) aren't available here so they can't make money off me
I do find that they provide me with good services (google now, maps) from the info I give them.
