Noted! Thank you Rosemary ;) I read this news with mixed feelings... to me it seems like Big Brother is watching us everywhere and that there is little respect left for privacy... no limits, no boundaries... where does it end? Freedom is a very good thing, I agree: freedom of speech, freedom of acting... but Freedom also has its limits...Doesn't someone's Freedom stop where someone else's Freedom begins?

Google will undoubtedly 'get over it' Hannah, the question is if your rights were violated, your privacy compromised, and your freedoms breached, would you?
Rita thank you for your intelligent response!
