Google on Wednesday pushed harder to downplay its role in a secret national surveillance program, detailing for the first time how it typically hands over data to federal officials.
Surprisingly, the global innovator uses decidedly simple and low-tech methods, including the delivery of information by hand or by transferring files from one computer to another.

“We leave the key under a rock out in the parking lot of our headquarters. And over the weekend while we are closed, the Feds use it to break in and take everything”.
Hey google, did it ever occur to you to JUST SAY NO?
This from a company that just days ago had never heard of prism.
I suspect that Google runs the DNC database that Maxine Waters was bragging about. “It knows everything about every American”, she said, along with her belief that the Democrats will now win every election using the database.
Google's IT department still uses floppy disks???? Seriously???
Do they listen to music on 8 track tapes?
Fat chance. Eric Schmidt is a big time democrat party money boy, and he has ambitions that go way beyond running a tech company. It's only a matter of time before he runs for elected office or gets appointed to some high position.
Googles president set it up for the dnc. It’s name is Civis
Yes, weren’t they just denying passing data to the feds? Are we supposed to believe the latest? Or the fed story that. Archived data can only be viewed with a warrant?
Google and this WH swap staff,,they are besties who cannot be disconnected.
I don’t care. Google is like GM. Goodbye.
Hit Google where it hurts, in the pocket book, fist boycott the movie.
“That could include putting data onto a floppy disk or external hard drive”
After reading the comments, I’m glad I’m not the only one who found this extremely bizarre wording.
It’s as if Google is trying to say “The statement we’re giving you is BS.” in the only way that it legally can.
Scrambling to cover their butts I see.
Exactly. The leftist pigs at google are probably writing the algorithms to mine their data to further the goals of the Stalinist left.
They were in the business of collecting user data from the gitgo.. no surprise.. that they are willing and able to swim with sharks speaks volumes.. just wait ‘til the schmidt hits the fan
Holy bleep! A punch card, haven’t seen one of those for ages! Wow!
