Google: We Will Track You -- a Satire

Below are my fun and satirical lyrics to: “We Will Track You,” which is a political parody/satire of Google’s essence -- sung to the classic tune:  We Will Rock You,” by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band, Queen, which was written by Frank Holdgren.

We Will Track You

So long to privacy cause we love our piracy

We put Glass on your face

Are Google Glass’ Recordings Illegal Wiretapping Too? -- Part 19 Google Spying Series

Google Glass’ easy eavesdropping on people may be illegal wiretapping.

Two courts already have ruled in different class actions that Google can be sued for illegal wiretapping for “interceptions” of personal information without meaningful consent -- in circumstances analogous to how Google Glass operates.

Why is that true? Let’s examine the top ten reasons.
