Leap Day: Freedom and Privacy Edition
Happy Leap Day!
We are going to use this lovely extra day in February to just remind everyone that Internet titan Google is changing their data use and privacy policies, which they even say is important stuff. Yet, the vast majority of gmail, search, youtube, and so forth users will never read this and never understand the high price they pay to use these "free" services.
Free Internet friends over at the Electronic Frontier Foundation have put together a great guide on steps you can take to delete your Google history before the March 1 deadline and thus hopefully minimize the harm. In general, you'll also learn more about these changes and why they are so important.
