Take for example google.

All google search data all your @-mails can be given to United states government on grants of vague Cyber-Security.

One example of United States government sticking it's huge nose to things, which shouldn't concern it.

TO ATS MODS: First or second? time posting news. If you feel that this is in wrong place or content is wrong please fix it... before just deleting it...
