Within 18 months, "street view" will be a commodity - tech such as LIDAR/GIS/Aerial imagery will provide the means to map every city street and building.   And since LIDAR can be done at night (when streets are deserted), views will be unobstructed from moving vehicles and pedestrians.   I'm glad Google did maps, it was useful. But all those street view photos will soon be irrelevant.
I sincerely appreciate some of the reasons you mentioned and I can't argue that some of those reasons may become reality. But the fact remains that the TOS wording gives WAY too much authority to Google - to use personal photo/video data amongst other data that Google already uses (like search/clicks/maps/youtube behavior). Consumers are typically ignorant and selfish, as are most humans. It's a sad time when consumers give up their personal data in exchange for "free"...
Each of these plans are genius for the large carriers that make more money than they should by complicating the plans. Business strategy is to maximize the PERCEPTION that customers are getting better services for cheaper (than the competitors). Ever wonder why each carrier has its own distinct mobile/data/usage plans? It makes it almost impossible to make a simple comparison without the consumer having to run 12-15 iterations/scenarios to determine which is best. In the...
For a smart guy, you seem to be really taking a naive position on all this. Most who happen to read the TOS would quite simply understand it to mean what StevenN., Penchanted, TMay and others have already said...that while the user retains IP, Google can use it. And there are a few substantial differences between Google and Apple language...Apple's includes phrases such as:- by submitting or posting such Content on areas of the Service that are accessible by the public or...
I was just reaching for humor....mostly because this message thread lacks a premise, especially when it is based on a sound bite in which J.Bush didn't say anything about replacing ACA with the Apple Watch... he said that in 5 years, a device (like the one he's wearing) will be able to provide a lot of people with an amazing amount of personal choices & responsibility of their own health. And that ACA should be repealed and should instead provide more choices for the...
I'm still not for replacing ACA with Apple Watches. You do know that ACA covers those less privileged, the poor, those that need our help, right?! Wait...what?...the Federal Gov't will subsidize my Apple Watch? So I can get the Apple Watch for "free"? F-ck ACA, give me the Apple Watch.
Appreciate the tips.But isn't it strange that the messages remain in the Drafts folder even after I send the message?I mean, in some instances, it only took 5 minutes between the time I composed it and sent it, yet the message is still in the Drafts folder.
No. Not anything I know of.
...get 2 of 'em.One to track you.One to track the other drone. :-)
....and it's getting better...to which many are thankful for. I still think that the integration between g00gle and Apple has been compromised because of the business relationship between the two...and the consumer has suffered (in our 1st world sort of ways).
