Our Life depends on Google
Whether we like it or not, “Google” is almost synonymous with “Internet”.
Year after year, Google has developed enough online applications for you to be able to do anything you need to, by only using Google.
Now we have a search engine, an online email service, an IM service, a blogging platform, photo and video sharing applications, a feed reader, an online word processor, an encyclopedia, a web site creator, an online directory
Internet without Google?
Now the question is: would the Internet be possible without Google?
Well, the natural response is yes, it would.
But it would be an Internet without its best search engine, without Gmail, YouTube, Google Video, Google Reader, Picassa, Blogger, Orkut, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Analytics, Google AdSense, Google Chrome, Google Analytics, Google News, Google, Google, Google!
Google is our Big Brother
Anything we do on the Internet or in “real life”, Google knows about. Maybe this sounds a bit exaggerated, but think about it:
Google knows what we are looking for.
Where we are from. What we are interested in. What we´re blogging about. What we are reading. What we advertise. What we click on. What our hobbies are. What we are going to do.
And so on.
Is Google making us stupid?
Here, the issue is more complex than it seems at the first sight.
With today´s computers and Internet, the access to information is freer than ever. And Google showed up to organize all that information and serve it on demand.
That makes it an excellent way to quickly find information, learn about things you wouldn´t otherwise know about and find an answer to virtually any question.
