The problem with Google
I came across this excellent article originally published in The Guardian - one of the UK's higher quality newspapers - it is well worth a read:
Interestingly The Guardian, is also a high profile customer of, and indeed cheerleader for Google applications........odd
My other recommendation of the day is for all those who read George Orwell's 1984, to read the follow up penned by Anthony Burgess - 1985. Written almost contemporaneously (1978) by Burgess, 1985 is chilling indeed, and paints a picture of a nation awash with useless information, and suggests a future that is in many respects our current reality.
