    Tech giant Google donated $285,000 to President Trump's inauguration despite the fact that Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Google's parent company Alphabet, worked directly with Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, FEC filings reveal. Google, which enjoyed direct access to President Barack Obama's administration and attended more than 400 White House meetings along with its affiliates, was forced to pivot following Donald Trump's November victory.

    Speaking before a crowd at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club on April 14, Sam Altman, president of startup accelerator Y Combinator, said he's spoken to hundreds of tech leaders and investors about creating a set of core values that all tech companies can get behind.There's a Google Doc where the big names in Silicon Valley, whom Altman would not reveal, have been drafting a statement that outlines the tech industry's position on a number of social, economic, and political issues. The document does not have a title or known release date."We're trying to basically figure out, can we come up with...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 4-18-17 | MOTUS
    The MSM, who never attended any Obama event that wasn’t wonderful, was highly critical of the first Trump Easter Egg Roll. The low whine started weeks ago with the press complaining that an “understaffed” White House was “unorganized” and “got a slow start planning the party.” And then, when it seemed to come off without a hitch yesterday they harped on  “the noticeably delayed preparation, reportedly low attendance, and now-predictable Trump gaffes.” Like when Melania nudged the President to put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.Too bad there wasn’t anyone around to nudge Barry to do the...

    THE tech giant is working on a job site called Google Hire, which could let prospective employers snoop your embarrassing search history. IN THIS day and age, every boss is going to quickly Google a prospective employee before asking them to come in for an interview. But now the technology giant is working on project called Google Hire, which The Sun reports will help employers learn perhaps a little bit too much about their new recruits. It will reportedly be a recruitment tool similar to LinkedIn — however, early reports suggest it will be available through your personal Google account....

    Tesla Inc.’s “gigafactory” has a big new neighbor: Google. Google last week bought land stretching across 1,210 acres at a private industrial park east of Reno, Nev., for $29.1 million, according to people familiar with the deal and documents filed late Friday in Storey County, Nev. The Alphabet Inc. GOOGL -0.15% unit aims eventually to build a data center at the 107,000-acre Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, according to these people. Google, which made the deal through a subsidiary called Silver Slate LLC—created in Delaware in August—has no immediate plans to build, according to a person close to the company. The...

    How much face time will your news story get on Facebook? How many eyes will ogle it on Google? Too often, this is apparently determined not by whether the story is “fake” news or newsworthy, but by whether it’s politically correct. And it’s time to break up the Internet’s left-wing, information-conduit oligopoly. If “knowledge is power” and “The pen is mightier than the sword,” entities controlling what pens you see are powerful indeed. C that Facebook and Google “account for 75% of all the referrals major news and entertainment sites now receive,” according to a Politico report in July. ADVERTISEMENT...

    In its ongoing bid to combat fake news, Google follows Facebook in announcing new technology to help curb spread of misinformation. Google is to start displaying fact-checking labels in its search results to highlight news and information that has been vetted and show whether it is considered to be true or false, as part of its efforts to help combat the spread of misinformation and fake news. The fact-checking feature, which was first introduced to Google News in the UK and US in October, will now be displayed as an information box in general search results as well as news...

    YouTube is addressing a corporate boycott: Advertising sponsors are withdrawing ads, but the solution involves disproportionately censoring channels that are not politically correct, specifically anything remotely conservative. Google AdSense, a program enabling YouTube publishers to receive ad revenue from corporate sponsors, caused titan corporations like AT&T, Verizon, Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Pepsi, and several others to pull their advertising from YouTube because their ads reportedly are premiering on channels with terroristic and hateful content. In an effort to comply with corporate demands, YouTube has secretly enforced their restricted mode to hide age-inappropriate content, shield comments from all videos, and allow third-party media...

    Google has no ownership rights on the truth. The truth can’s be owned. It can only be told. Google’s grab as the inarguable ‘Truth Teller of the Digital World’ was never too big to fail. Google principals living high on the proverbial hog just don’t seem to get that you can’t tell people what to believe any more than you can tell them what to think.

    As usual, the rabbit hole gets much deeper the more you look. In yesterday’s post, Credibility of Cyber Firm that Claimed Russia Hacked the DNC Comes Under Serious Question, I examined how CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm hired by the DNC to look into its hacking breach, had been exposed as being completely wrong about a separate attack it claimed originated from the same group it claimed broke into DNC systems, and supposedly works for Russia’s military intelligence unit, GRU. Here’s some of what we learned: An influential British think tank and Ukraine’s military are disputing a report that the U.S....

    Hillary Clinton generates events to support her narrative. For example, Clinton accused Trump of creating an atmosphere of violence at his rallies. To support the narrative she paid people to instigate trouble at Trump rallies. She has long had the narrative that Trump is connected with Russia. It began with accusations that Trump’s adviser Paul Manafort was tied to Russia, and that Trump too was tied to Russia. That went nowhere. Now months later the narrative has advanced to Russia hacked the DNC. This claim is based on Dmitri Alperovitch and Crowdstrike. Given Clinton’s pattern of generating events to support...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Google Maps users will soon be able to broadcast their movements to friends and family via the app - the latest test of how much privacy people are willing to sacrifice in an era of rampant sharing. The location-monitoring feature will begin rolling out Wednesday in an update to the Google Maps mobile app, which is already installed on most of the world’s smartphones. It will also be available on personal computers. Google believes the new tool will be a more convenient way for people to let someone know where they are without having to text...

    Global brands including Volkswagen, Toyota and Tesco last night joined the more than 250 companies that have suspended advertising deals with Google as the internet giant apologised for failing to crack down on extremism. ITV, Aviva and Heinz also pulled advertising from YouTube, Google’s video platform, after an investigation by The Times found the companies promoted on videos posted by hate preachers, rape apologists and homophobic extremists banned from entering Britain. A growing number of brands have blocked Google or YouTube advertising since the revelations last week. They include Marks & Spencer, Lloyds Bank, O2, L’Oréal, RBS, the BBC, Channel...

    Social media companies Facebook Inc., Alphabet Inc. and Twitter Inc. will have to amend their terms of service for European users within a month or face the risk of fines, a European Commission official said on Friday. U.S. technology companies have faced tight scrutiny in Europe for the way they do business, from privacy to how quickly they remove illegal or threatening content. The Commission and European consumer protection authorities will “take action to make sure social media companies comply with EU consumer rules,” the official said. The comments confirmed a Reuters report from Thursday. Germany, the most populous EU...
