As long as they don't start building Droidekas we'll be ok...

I'm less concerned about the drone army than I am about their widget that requires me to answer a survey question before reading the article.

It's not a drone army. It's really more of an air force, or a fleet.

Project Loon 2.0?

"Begun, the Chrome Wars have".

Shouldn't it be "drone air force"?

I wonder if Google are preparing to build their own entirely separate internet, made from drones and some fibre, and maybe a balloon somewhere.

Question:  Who DOESN'T want their own drone army?

Real-Time Google Maps, for the serious stalking enthusiast

GOOGLE = SKYNET
 
2014-04-15 11:57:05 AM
 We refer to it as "The Google"

An entity so large, so consuming it will over take the planet in 4 years. Once the Googling has occured, our lives will never be the same..

I wouldn't even conquer anything with it.  Just have them do all the chores around the house.

You're right, their army core will be glassholes.

I think they bought Boston Dynamics because they want a drone army of headless robot gazelles.

It turns out that Google is the leading candidate to make something called Skynet.
 
2014-04-15 12:53:17 PM
THEN WHO WAS DRONE?

In other news, President Putin responded that he was deeply concerned about the safety of Russian-born Sergey Brin, and has mobilized the Russian air force to protect Mr. Brin and other Russian-speakers at Google.

Not taking a stupid survey to read article.  Or signing up for ads.  No ads.  Burn forever, site.

Well, is it going to increase power cube drops?

Will it finally start taking out spoofers?

Are the shapers involved?

I like the idea of having incredibly powerful companies with entrenched crazy ideas.

Well... that could prove to be useful, as Google appears to be a CIA contractor.

any entity with the motto 'dont be evil,' is someone you wanna get on board with (sometimes literally).

As soon as google stops being an evil advertising monstrosity we can be friends again.

"Oh my God, they advertised to me while I was browsing. Then they made glasses. They're worse than Hitler :("

Perspective on evil, get some, right the fark now.

Google has been cannibalizing all the tech companies it can. This is just the latest in a loooooong list of companies they've grabbed to consolidate their power.
Google is not our friend. We only stand to lose from this.

Yes, let's get some perspective from the guy invoking Hitler.  Or maybe we should go with the "Anti-Google derp thread!" guy.
Your arguments are reasonable and respectable.

If i was a betting man my money would be on Google doing a better job of it than Facebook.

Right, everything terrible is hitler.  Your posts are hitler.

Chill out.  Advertising sucks, and it's bad for everyone.  I'm not changing my right opinion because of your wrong ones.
 
2014-04-16 10:08:33 AM
No. How is advertising bad? How does that translate to advertisers being evil? Does evil have a scale of evil? Where abouts does the evil of an advertiser rank?

How much are you willing to pay for Google's services without advertising? I'm sure Google would be fascinated to know.

This might sound like a lowball to you, but
$10 a month.

As it stands, I just don't use google(except email, because you know, your online identity kinda gets stuck, and getting out involved updating everyone relevant)
