What You Don’t Know Won’t Hurt You

Hehehe…Funny pic.

peaceful controversy

Everyone has heard the saying “what you don’t know won’t hurt you“……..

But….is this really true?

I know someone who makes a lot of money on the premise of this phase.  He provides a service to people that call him because they need someone to make their living environment a healthier place to live in.

This person does absolutely nothing right in front of their eyes, but convinces them that he has just saved their lives and the lives of their babies and walks out with a check for thousands of dollars.

What they don’t know won’t hurt them.

In this case, it even helps them.

Why Google and Others Are On Board with Obama’s Privacy Bill of Rights

Tech

If there’s anything remarkable about President Obama’s new “Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights,” it’s that it hasn’t raised much of a ruckus in Silicon Valley. Internet giants such as Google and others aren’t raising hell; in fact, they’ve happily enlisted themselves in the fight for privacy by agreeing to implement “Do Not Track” buttons.

It wasn’t always like this. Just last May companies including Google, Yahoo, Facebook and others sent out a strongly worded letter opposing a similar proposal, the Social Networking Privacy Act, introduced in the California State Senate.

(MORE: Does Obama’s Online ‘Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights’ Get the Job Done?)

So why the change of heart? One big difference is that the California bill was more stringent, asking companies to comply with information removal requests within 48 hours and present users with privacy settings before they even tried out the site.
