Google vs The World

One from El Reg about how Google wants to mirror the entire world's hard drives Google outspooks the spooks with Total Information Awareness plan.

Now, this isn't totally beyond the realms of possibility, seeing as how the World's Fluffiest Megacorp (tm) actually mirrors the entire internet every couple of days and searches through it on its own Brobdingagian computers (and you wondered why all those searches are so fast). However, net activists are already exceedingly twitchy over Gobble's current power, so this just adds fuel to the flames.

Absolute power corrupts, don'tcha know.
