It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

Because you end up relying on a single vendor for services. Because standards are ignored. because a single data breach means you are screwed.


If Google ever had a data breach and someone made off with all the information Google has about you in the profile they build about you, you are probably worse than screwed.

No, it's not. If it were, they would not be able to link your profile to you and targeted advertising would not work.
