Larry Page, “Dear Google Users”

Larry Page, “Dear Google Users”

Internet media has reported that the NSA, the secretive United States Government Organization, has direct access to servers of some of the biggest web and technology companies in the world. Google, Microsoft, Skype and Facebook have all been in the headlines. The NSA has developed a project called PRISM which allows officials to collect private information from users such as search history, emails and files they send.

We all know that Google’s mission is to organize worlds information, make it universally accessible and useful. But we are interested in things we do not know about Google. Is Google part of the PRISM project? I don’t think so and I hope not.

Larry Page the CEO of Google posted a short message about this situation on his Google+ account. He says that Google is not part of this program or any similar program and that nobody can touch Google’s users. Larry writes, Google have not heard about the PRISM program until now. He says that Google provides user data to Governments only in accordance with the law and as required. Read the all messageĀ here.

We’d like to hear your thoughts and comments below.

    I don’t believe them.

    Every tech giant’s denials contained identical language, denying “direct access.” NYTimes confirmed tech company access on 6/7: “instead of adding a back door to their servers, the companies were
    essentially asked to erect a locked mailbox and give the government the
    key, people briefed on the negotiations said.” Clapper should be lose his job immediately for lying to Congress.

    Larry Page is not being completely honest! The manner in which the PRISM program/project works does not need access from company administrators or owners, so called “direct access”; the access to the information is already there. These tech company CEOs take for granted the actual intelligence of most end users of their products. All it takes is a little digging and reading to go from ignorant to informed on these things especially on exactly how the internet works/functions in the U.S.A. I find Larry Page’s remarks just as laughable as Al Gore’s claim to “inventing” the internet/world wide web!

    If you, as an end user, are reading this post; I challenge you to research these matters yourself. It really is quite simple with all the “information sites” that exist on the web today ie Wikipedia, & other online encyclopedias that actually list source material, as well as highly respected tech sites and blogs that also list their source material. Be warned: this is only the tip of the iceberg and these tech CEOs know and understand this; they are scrambling in attempt to perform DAMAGE CONTROL to save the company and what little trust thay have left from their products end users/consumers.

    Am I a skeptic? I believe someone has to be or needs to be at this point in time! If your not just a little skeptical of the government, tech companies, and the people that are in charge of these agencies and companies; you need to be, even if just a little skeptic. For your own personal protection and security! I know I was a part of this community for over 14 years!
