Google Reads All Emails Justifies Rightly

In internet on April 16, 2014 at 23:05

Google has admitted to reading  all the Email contents in , what it terms as to ‘to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customised

search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.”

Privacy goes through the Window!

 

But it may be added that if you need personalized recommendations from the Service provider, I do not think there is any other option but to agree to what Google says.

Google is right.

One can not have the cake and eat it too

 

Google Inc updated its terms of service on Monday, informing users that their incoming and outgoing emails are automatically analyzed by software to create targeted ads.

The revisions more explicitly spell out the manner in which Google software scans users’ emails, both when messages are stored on Google’s servers and when they are in transit, a controversial practice that has been at the heart of litigation.

Last month, a U.S. judge decided not to combine several lawsuits that accused Google of violating the privacy rights of hundreds of millions of email users into a single class action.

Users of Google’s Gmail email service have accused the company of violating federal and state privacy and wiretapping laws by scanning their messages so it could compile secret profiles and target advertising. Google has argued that users implicitly consented to its activity, recognizing it as part of the email delivery process.

Google’s updated terms of service added a paragraph stating that “our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.”

A Google representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Four Years In WordPress 1.3 Millions

In Blogging on August 21, 2013 at 08:42

This blog has completed four years in WordPress.

Though I had an idea that I would be completing four years, I did not think of it much as I was not really bothered about writing about it.

However I received a notification from WordPress that this milestone(?) may be blogged as the blog has some interesting features.

Following are the salient points.

Fourth Anniversary in WordPress.

Fourth Anniversary in WordPress.

Number of Followers 1447.

Likes                                 1337.

Categories                         117.

Tags                                16.683(Did I tag that much?)

Posts                                5748

Hits                                 13,43,820

Comments                          3450

Maximum Hits               29803

recorded in a day

Average Hit/day                1832

This is the statistical part of it.

What is more important to me is that I came across very good posts in my search for writing;some of them are found not on the first twenty results of Google search, but are very good in terms of content.

This reaffirms my belief that good articles need not be restricted to the first page results alone.

Probably, these people are also like me, want to share information yet do not know(as I do) the nuances of getting a place in the first Page search results.

Many of  my posts do find a place in the first results though.

Good content is always appreciated, more importantly useful.

This I have learnt from the feedback for my posts.

People do write to me to elaborate on a particular subject, which I have blogged about :and in many a case suggest topics.

This is the part I enjoy the most.

I do get criticisms ;fortunately most of them are creative, guiding me towards clarity and research.

Now most of my posts are on the basis of what the readers want and about what I am confident of writing.

I do research.

More than the readers I am happy I can acquire information.

I had an initial perception that writing about a popular topic shall drive traffic to your site.

Now I find that content drives.

Yet writing on popular topics gets you the initial readers and on their recommendations you get established.

Then one can write to engage the readers by writing what they want and about what one is confident about.

I have received queries from some bloggers that they have a personal blog and in their opinion they are not getting the Hits as they should, in their opinion.

My answer is that if your content is useful and interesting, Hits will come, though it might take some time. none can say how long.

Some of posts dating back to 2009 are Hits now.

Thank God, I did not delete them;on the contrary, I update them frequently.

Updating a Post is important.

Another reason why some personal blogs do not Get Hits is the fact that people are not interested in your woes and happiness, unless it is dramatic.

Expression of personal emotions alone will not guarantee you Hits or readers.

It is the general message that others can learn from such instances, with adequate proof or sources will interest the readers.

As usual I have not planned for this post and I have written what has come to my mind off the cuff.

I shall update as and when I get ideas.

And Thank You,

Readers,

WordPress.

What Happened When Bank Computer Went Crazy

In Interesting and funny on July 8, 2013 at 09:03

Internet bot

Once a search engine bot arrives to your site the first thing it will look for in your site is the file names robots.txt, I have talked about the robots.txt file in this article. You can check that article out if you want to know about robots.txt file

I often wondered at the replies of the Call Center,Help Line executives of large organisations when they try to answer your queries.

They do not react to your questions.

They reply by way of answering in a way they have been trained to answer,to escape accountability or what they think you want to hear!

Their last resort  is ‘Your request is being escalated’, as if it is a war.

Note they would never use the term Complaint but always ‘your request or Your service request”

I have posted on this.

I never knew that Computers have also been assigned this task.

Recently bank Of America’s bot went out of control and this is the result.

      *bots,
      Internet bots, also known as web robotsWWW robots or simply bots, are software applications that run automated tasks over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone. The largest use of bots is in web spidering, in which an automated script fetches, analyses and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human. Each server can have a file called robots.txt, containing rules for the spidering of that server that the bot is supposed to obey or be removed..

 

 

Girl Kicked Out By Ex Boy Friend Google Street View.Privacy?

In internet on May 31, 2013 at 17:23

Google Street View has captured a Girl being kicked out of her ex Boy friend’s House.

Wonderful Technology!

The issue of kicking out a woman is deplorable.

 

My point is that are we ever alone’

See some of the Google Street View Photos below.

Would we be alone at least in the Toilet?

I doubt.

Girl being thrown out , Google Street View.

Girl Being kicked out of Ex. Boy friend’s House

A bad break-up can be tough enough, but what if it was captured by Google Street View cameras and immortalized on the web?

That’s the dilemma of one woman, who – after being dumped by her boyfriend several years ago – can be seen beside her car with a pile of her belongings, according to several internet postings.

The image was posted on Reddit and the photo-sharing site Imgur with the caption: ‘Google Streetview captures the glorious moment when my buddy kicks his now ex-gf out of his house.’

In it, the downtrodden female clutches a Victoria’s Secret bag as she stands next to curbside bags and boxes. Among the items is a beach chair and what appears to be a giant stuffed dog.

The identity of the woman is not known, but the photo was snapped somewhere in Southern California, according to the poster, who declined to provide additional details to ‘protect the identities and privacy of my friend and his ex.’

Google Street View of  a Man.

Weird: This baffling snap captured by a Street View camera shows apparently naked man climbing into or out of the trunk of a Mercedes in Mannheim, south-west Germany, while a dog sprawls on the driveway
