Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 I was shocked after seeing that Google on Friday tried to make an argument that releasing a bunch of query strings from its logs (without any personally identifiable information, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 PII for short) would:

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 1. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 undermine public trust in the privacy of Google’s service

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 2. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 expose its trade secrets

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 3. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 unnecessarily burden Google

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 what were they thinking ?

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 This is why I think their arguments are ridiculous:

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 1. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 The government is asking for this data to help fight exposing our children to porn, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 so definitely a good cause and very legitimate reason.

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 2. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 The government is only asking for one week of query-strings, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 they are not asking for IP addresses, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 for cookies, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 for zip codes, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 etc. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 Its just a bunch of query-strings. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 Its impossible to tie just a query string back to the person who issued it, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 even if you were searching for your name, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 it could have been somebody else searching for you (I am sure the government can give them the option to sanitize out vanity queries, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 replace them all with George Bush or something like that)

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 3. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 The government is also asking for a random 1M sample of the links that Google crawls, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 now that has nothing to do with privacy what so ever, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 that’s all public info on the web.

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 4. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 How can the query-strings that the user’s enter into Google and the URLs that are publicly available on the web, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 represent a trade secret ? That would be a trade secret only if Google was generating these things, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 but they aren’t, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 the people are. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 If Google is worried about refinement queries from its spell-correct or also-try feature (if any), antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 then they can filter those out and only leave the organic queries that the users typed in by them selves.

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 5. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 Finally, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 I was really ROFL when I saw their last claim: “unnecessarily burden Google”. Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 He he ;) we all know that getting either of those 2 pieces information would take one Google engineer a couple of hours using the Sawzall query language and map-reduce.

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 The message I am getting is: “We Google think its ok for us to use the user queries to make money, antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 but its wrong to let the government use them to help protect our children”.

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 I predict that Google will lose this fight.

Antibiotics > minomycin 50mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $135.00 — amr
