Some of you guys crack me up.

We want our privacy! Sure, but you'll get shittier services in return. It's not rocket science. More information means better accuracy, better accuracy means more convenience. People act like they're some, okay let's use the term, "special snowflake," when in reality you can be categorized with 95%+ accuracy within a month or two of recording your searches. Racial profiling, prejudice! No, it's the facts. I want my privacy! Then you can fall behind in productivity because you'll never keep up with progressing society. It's a fact, it's a reality, deal with it.

You have the people who complain about apps not delivering enough or being perfect turning around and being hypocrites by refusing to supply the data that would make them better; you guys are part of the problem, not the solution. Privacy is no longer the issue, it's more of getting greater value in return for the trade. Giving up your privacy for their gain is stupid, giving it up for your or the greater gain is not. Simple. Saying that giving up some privacy regardless of the reasons or rationale is somehow equivalent to 1984 is just naive and, to be quite honest, backwards-thinking.

After that seemingly intelligent rant, you want to talk about people being naive? /facepalm

Ask the over 6 million people who were killed by the Nazis in concentration camps if they felt like they were helping society when their data was categorized by the IBM computers of the time. That's right, the Nazis used a system built by IBM to categorize it's people and then they came in the night and took them all away to their doom. Do you honestly think that mankind has evolved past such atrocities?

People like you who swoop in on your high horse thinking you know how all this data will be used in the long term make me sick. You are the problem, not the people who are cautious and who studied history and who know that it's only a matter of time before some psychopaths use all that data against us.
