PLANET GOOGLE One Company's Audacious Plan to Organize Everything We Know

by | Read by William Hughes

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Randall Stross's collection of facts and interviews combines with narrator William Hughes's prosecutorial tone to create an audio indictment of Google's business and consumer practices. He believes that Google is more dangerous than the government because it scans your books and your email, photographs your house and your street, and stores copies of your business documents and spreadsheets. Stross's concern seems to be that having all that information under one roof is a recipe for disaster. But the fact that 60 Gmail users lost their email or that Google wouldn't let Stross inspect its server farm just doesn't make much of a case. William Hughes narrates this audiobook like an engaging cross-examination but, alas, you'd do better searching for the evils of Google on Google.
