Last week saw Google host their annual Google IO developer conference in California. Over the past few years they’ve given away some great devices to developers attending, starting back in 2010 with a Google Nexus One, then Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1’s on 2011, this year they gave away a Nexus 7 (tablet with the next version of Android, Jelly Bean) a Nexus Q (Google’s answer to Sonos) and a Galaxy Nexus (which will be receiving Jelly Bean very soon).
Well, it kinda arrives… it’s in it’s beta, invite only stage right now. For some time now, I’ve not been a fan of Facebook. I’ve moved them into a similar category as Apple in that I just see them as a little bit evil. Some people worry about Google knowing so much about them, but as I see it, they only want this information so they can show you ads of things you might want to buy. Surely those are the best adverts to see? Facebook wants information on you to sell to other people, who knows what they’ll do with the info. They will gather this info in sneaky ways too, so even if you’ve reasonable privacy settings, if you’re friends don’t, and they can see your info, it can be sold. They also have a history of changing their minds of devs and then introducing something similar themselves.
