Google: 'Complete Privacy Does Not Exist'

Illustration for article titled Google: 'Complete Privacy Does Not Exist'

If you're looking for one statement to neatly sum up the world we live in right now, allow me to present to you this one, made by Google lawyers in their defense during a Google Street View lawsuit: "Today's satellite-image technology means that even in today's desert, complete privacy does not exist."

I mean, I guess I kind of agree with them, and I think people suing Google for putting a photo of the exterior of their house on Street View are idiots, but putting it that plainly kind of takes the wind out of your sails, no? [Smoking Gun via The Raw Feed]

uh...there is no control over someone taking a picture of the outside of a house and posting if for all to see.

Those who think they do have such control may not be complete idiots, but are "overly optimistic."
