    gmail/google and megalomania


    (not sure which section applies to this alert so admin plse re-site if it's in the wrong section)

    Please pass it on:-

    have had gmail app on mobile phone for some time, quite successfully.
    Today i went to check for mail and was forced to sign in anew ( no access to current boxes/folders).
    To sign in I had to allow google.com access to my app and browser to use my information as they wish.

    I cannot find a way to communicate with google admin to complain, protest or give the finger.
    This is a blatant grab for information that I do no wish to share but alas I must keep the app available as it is set up
    with mail concerning a trip. As soon as the trip is over I will remove this app.

    The big G is a megalomaniac.

    May be due to the new gmail released Wednesday. Here is some humor I saw recently.
    :)




    CALLER: Is this Gordon's Pizza?

    GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza.

    CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry.

    GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Gordonís Pizza last month.

    CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza.

    GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir?

    CALLER: My usual? You know me?

    GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.

    CALLER: OK! Thatís what I want


    GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten free thin crust?

    CALLER: What? I detest vegetables!

    GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir.

    CALLER: How do you know?

    GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

    CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your vegetable pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.

    GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago.

    CALLER: I bought more from another drugstore.


    CALLER: I paid in cash.

    GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.

    CALLER: I have other sources of cash.

    GOOGLE: That doesnít show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law.

    CALLER: WHAT THE HECK? Are you serious!?

    GOOGLE: I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.

    CALLER: Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I'm going to an island without internet, cable TV, where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.

    GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago.
