Re: Strange....

It's a bad thing that it wasn't there from the very beginning. It's a bad thing now because they're not thinking about these things thoroughly or methodically, it's all done piece meal according to whatever the latest publicity about privacy is. It's a bad thing because it's still all about getting hold of more data for themselves, and using it to make more money.

I hope the NHS is damn well charging them a fortune for access to the data, or have placed audited embargoes on using the data for anything other than medical research. And since when did Google become a medical research institute? Have they suddenly stopped being an ad broker?
