What Google Knows About Us – Cool Chart – You Care or Not?

There was a day when we called the Government “Big Brother” — Heck, in listening to an audio book over the summer, “Big Brother” was also the name of the first computer, BEFORE we called it a Personal Computer –

Is Google the modern day “Big Brother” that will eventually be thought of as no big deal, just as the PC is now?

Probably!

What Big Brother AKA Google Knows

From our friends and Visual Capitalist – a Cool “Big Brother” analysis for you to kick around-

Artificial Intelligence Preview – Friday

It’s well known Google has been testing a driverless car…6c0d53bc-9f62-4c3d-a85d-ef80a35cfc4b-536-00000063ca5ef0cc

The possibilities are endless, should we all get into the back seats or out of our cars completely…

Just think of the room that would be created by all those extra parking spaces?

What just a second though!

Next week we discuss and review an interesting take on Artificial Intelligence (AI) along with our friends from Wharton …

That is next week and the summer is slowly sliding away.

Many are starting school, my gang, thankfully has one more week, but the extra time must be paid back somewhere in the year one way or another.

Enjoy your Friday and your weekend!

Think your buying habits are not being swayed ? Think again! Fun example

Let’s have a little fun !!

You likely will think twice after this exercise as you make buying decisions.

Certainly everyone who is reading this has ordered numerous items on Amazon.

Not shooting at Amazon….. we use them constantly… just a great example for our discussion, so please, no stones!

Is Our Buying Controlled?decision-1448155

Go to your Amazon account and type in “Google Home”

This device is the direct competitor to Amazon Echo.

It is very likely you will get multiple options of the Amazon device, but none of the Google device…

Now just search for Google Home on your regular browser!

Most likely you used Google to search in your browser, very different results.

Clearly the Amazon search is skewed, but to think the Google search is not? Hmmmm

Not creating a problem here, not trying to advance a conspiracy theory …. marketers have correctly been doing this for decades…

It’s just easier make an example as the facts pop right up in our face!

Have a great “Known Swayed” buying day!

Have a “More Informed Internet Ownership” day!
