Data collection is big business and Google is at the forefront of this industry, providing people with conveniences while siphoning away user privacy in the process. Google knows everything about you – your daily routines, where you travel, who you interact with, what you’re interested in, what you’re looking for. Their algorithms analyze this data and can predict where you’ll go in the future, what you’re most likely to purchase, who you’re most likely to engage with, etc. The data is sold to third parties so advertisers can manipulate you like a puppet. Third parties use the data and track you across social media, email, news feeds, etc. to make you consume, think, and act the way they need you to.
Big Tech is manipulating you
This plot is not only about turning you into a good consumer slave, but it’s also about manipulating your political beliefs, your ideologies, and controlling your emotions toward a particular subject, and so much more. Google and other tech giants are building a psychological profile on you. They are using algorithms to understand what matters most to you, what motivates you, why you vote the way you do, and how it can be changed. The tech giants are now open about removing independent thinkers from their platforms. Using defamation, tech giants are removing profiles, pages, and content they have declared to be “hateful” or “dangerous.” Prominent conservatives and independent thinkers are being taken off social media. Now the consequences of wide-scale data collection and privacy loss are evident. Wide scale data collection empowers these tech giants, their leadership, their business interests, and their political goals, giving them the ability to control journalism and manipulate free thought that they don’t agree with. They are using data and AI analysis of this data to stop the free flow of ideas in what was once a free society.
So why would any informed person want Google to know exactly where you are driving in your private vehicle? Get ready for “Android Auto” the latest surveillance tech from Google.
Google unveils Android Audio, allowing Big Tech to get to know you more intimately
With Android Auto, Google makes it easy for you to use your voice to navigate while you drive. Using your Android phone, you will be able to access a new feature called Assistant Driving Mode. This interface combines your messaging, calls, media player, and your navigation all in one location. You don’t even have to position your Android phone in a dashboard dock, because the app is listening to you.
All you have to do once you get in your vehicle is say, “Hey Google, let’s drive.” Google responds immediately by bringing up the driving navigation view. Instantaneously Google pulls up your calendar, music, missed calls, and location data all in one place. The Google Assistant already knows where you are headed based on the information provided through messenger, a phone call, or the location of your next calendar task. The Assistant then sets you up with Google maps and navigates for you, telling you when to turn, where to be. If you miss a call during the drive, the Assistant may remind you to call them back, all hands free. You can also continue listening to a podcast that you started listening to back at home. There’s no struggle. The map guides you and the Assistant’s voice keeps you on track.
Assistant Driving Mode arrives to the U.S. late 2019 on Assistant-enabled Android phones. Turn on your microphone, location, and maps, so Google can get to know you more intimately than ever before. Hop in your vehicle and give Google access to your private messages and calls so they can make your life easier. It’s the next step to becoming a cyborg.
