  1. I don't believe it knows all about me, darlin.

    I bet Google didn't know (until now) what a fantastic cook I am. Or how my face lights up with joy (yes, I said joy) over the simplest of things at times.

  2. Google's ability to understand patterns from the micromoves of every individual (our digital footprints) is what makes them a formidable competitor in many industries. They could emerge as the one who knows more about customers than anyone else: it is simultaneously scary and interesting in terms of the potential services.
