Google wants to record what you see! WITH YOUR EYES!
Just as an Internet connection has made our phones smarter and is in the process of making our TVs smarter, soon your glasses may be smarter too, thanks to a project from Google that could be a breakthrough in wearable computing.

The tech giant's secretive Google X lab is reportedly developing a pair of "smart glasses" that would connect with the Internet, or possibly rely on an Android smartphone to connect with the Web, to offer up information in a heads-up display.

The glasses, which the site 9to5Google reported would look somewhat like the Oakley Thump, would include a built-in camera that records what the wearer is looking at and then uses that feed to find relevant information about what's being observed, which is then displayed on the lenses of the headset.

It appears that google wants to know what you see from their end and also from your end.

Talk about invasive. I thought they were the "Don't be evil" company? rofl

Re: Google wants to record what you see! WITH YOUR EYES!
Today I deleted my google and youtube accounts, and got rid of google chrome.
I installed tor browser, and got an extension for firefox called Do Not Track.
Fuck them.
So far today I have blocked..
'Ingenious! Your all-time total is:
789 blocked'

social button tracking, ad network tracking and companies tracking.
No more.
For now anyways.

Yes...I've done the same over the last few weeks. Of course I opted out of all of their tracking by turning web cache off and all that shit. I also block analytic scripts from running at all. They can eat shit.

That would be an option if you could pull a list from somewhere. Got one?

Otherwise you have to perform a lot of manual labor to keep it up to date.

HAHA! Yeah. Good one! The way I look at it; they are a business. When I use their services I am on their property and when I am on their property they don't play by the same rules as I do. They poke and prod me. Stuff tracking items in my pocket and then when I ask them what I am looking for they give me the politically correct bullshit versions of info that they have been ordered to.

Besides in regards to their new privacy bullshit they wrote "If you don't want to be part of the new privacy rules, then you need to close your accounts before March 1st" So I did.

Bleh...fuck'em.
