Google Buzz: Oh And About That Privacy Thing....

The Googleplex received a wrist slapping yesterday with an out of settlement court action regarding the launch of its wonderful service called Buzz.

Basically it's new service forgot to acknowledge that some things are meant to be private and acknowledged as such. And this included the default situation. Google was sued and settled out of court for about 1 minute of its revenue.

So do we think Google will play nice and stop collecting data - nope. But they better play nice and stop making gross assumptions about what we want.

Google - we be watching you, 'cos we know you be watchin' us.
