Don’t Be Evil – Google’s Evil Master Plan

I got a good laugh out of this video. While it was based on facts from the book The Google Story by David A. Vise, I personally think the video was sponsored by Microsoft. 😈

    Very interesting video indeed. Makes some valid points, but I wonder about its veracity. In any event, one thing is for sure, Google will keep growing as long as internet exists. Who knows how far Google will go about privacy. ❓

    1. Good points. I too, think this video is a little farfetched, but who knows…

      😆 First thing I want to say is I don’t care for You Tube videos. I resent the bit by bit playing. Load the dang thing and then play it all at one time.
      The clue to the humor is the statement that Google wants all information to be free to everyone. The punch line is: then Google can control it. The height of absurdity. You have to at least smile at this contradiction.
      I also have trouble imagining the number of little men(women) wearing green eye shades, sitting in their little cells reading the 80 million pieces of email sent hourly around the world. 😮
      Google, I seem to remember, told the Homeland Insecurity gang to jump in the lake. And got away with it.

    Anyone seen the firefox plugin:

    Have been using it and love it, just don’t like the fact that google will have access to my browsing data.

    1. They monitor that anyway! I love the plugin – I’ve been using it for a long time!

  3. Thats one evil video 🙂

  4. Alex says:

    Is a funny video, but i think than if Google buy Wikipedia, Google will control the Internet :p

    1. IndoDX says:

      And if that happen… I don’t know what will happen next 🙂

      1. Well.. It would be hard now to determine the ‘truth’ on everything, wouldn’t it?

    2. Jonix says:

      Isn’t google controling the internet now?

      1. Dave says:

        No. They certainly wield a LOT of power, but they don’t control it.

      2. Catmoves says:

        😡 No, Google doesn’t control the internet now. But what control there is, is from the enormously rich international banking system backed by our own Federal Reserve Banking System. Have a look at the film on “”.

    3. Google controls the Internet now! They wouldn’t buy Wiki then change it – it’s purpose it user interaction!

      1. Dave says:

        Wikipedia isn’t for sale, so they wouldn’t be able to buy it. Jimmy has said multiplle times that the company is not for sale.

  5. derrich says:

    What made it scarier is that the narrator hada British ak-sint. When I imagine Google’s computer(s), I think of that computer from iRobot. Definitely evil. Right up John’s alley.

    1. Aris says:

      Do you guys think that video will be taken out from Youtube?

      1. Alex says:

        of course, youtube = google

        1. Dave says:

          I doubt Google will take it down from YouTube. That will only feed the fire: “See! It IS true, Google took it down so we couldn’t see!!” Would be the cry of the conspirators.

  6. Jack says:

    How long before we start seeing “The Google Center” instead of GM Place or the Air Canada Center.

    1. derrich says:

      Only a matter of time…

      1. Why would that be a bad thing? Every state in the nation has a least five sponsored arenas!

  7. Skitzzo says:

    If you liked that video, you’ll like this one as well…

    The Future of Adsense

    It too could have been made by MS and might not be all that realistic but it’s something to think about at the very least and VERY well done.

    1. derrich says:

      I saw that…these videos are crazy. I want my mommy. 😳

    2. Jason says:

      Heh heh … I like your avatar there. 😈

    3. Dave says:

      I think the Google video is much better than this adsense one. The Google vid actually seems like it’s based in fact (and probably most of it is, they just present the facts in the way they want it to come across). The Adsense video is pure sci-fi conjecture…and not very good conjecture at that 🙂

  8. Alex Shalman says:

    I don’t worry about things like this – I know that if anything bad was going to happen, John Chow would be there to save the day.

  9. Truly!! Promoted by Microsoft 🙄

  10. androo says:

    wild stuff! 😈

  11. That sounded like one of those retarded “George Bush ordered 9/11” videos. I might believe it if the video’s creator mysteriously “disappears”, but until that happens it is… blah.

    1. Jonix says:

      If this was real and a theory of conspiracy, what you said is absolutlty what google wants us to think and say 🙂

  12. I think you have competition on the evil front John. 🙂

  13. Stephanie says:

    I’m reading “The Google Story” right now – pretty interesting, but I didn’t pull any conspiracy theories out of it! 😉

  14. Oh please, Micorosft? A lot of people hate Google.

  15. Jeff Kee says:

    And you all thought John Chow was evil? Think again.

  16. Jason says:

    Besides being overly dramatic, the video was your typical tabloid journalism … vague allegations without much substance. Just fear-mongering really.

    I have to admit though, that I was kept enthralled by the clever and high-quality graphics and animation … if only they used that obvious talent for good instead of for evil! 😉

  17. Should have bought the stock ! 😀

    1. Jon Lee says:

      Thats a really paranoid video.. and yes, came out at $100 and experts said it was overinflated… damn experts

      1. James says:

        Never listen to the experts. The real experts can’t be reached for comment.

    2. No kidding, I should have bought stock too 😥

      1. Dave says:

        I still think the stock is overvalued 🙂

  18. Timen says:

    What a load of crock.

  19. That was very interesting, but nothing was a surprise to me. I have heard all of this before. Aside from the Genetic Engineering stuff.


  20. :mrgreen:
    I love Google, they can do no wrong in my eyes 😎
    That being said, I do find it interesting that someone felt the need to make such a video, and I agree about the graphics, they were far more impressive than the information it contained. Thank you for putting this video up though.

    1. I agree, they provide so many great products – for free! I realize they make their money from ads, but if that bothered me, I’d use an ad blocker!

    2. Dave says:

      Google is one of the better companies out there. But…I wouldn’t go as far as saying they can do no evil…as no one is perfect.

  21. Ed Lau says:

    Whoa, it’s like Nazi propaganda…but more high tech.

  22. Trent says:

    I cant view the video for some reason, anyone got direct link to it on youtube?

  23. Ulchie says:

    Now I feel REALLY guilty… I installed Google Analytics (Urchin) today to track web statistics on my site. 😆

    Wanna know the funny part? The reason I didn’t install it months ago was because I didn’t want google to use the information to essentially rip off publishers.

    Maybe I should take it off…

    Anyone know of any other really good free traffic stats program?

  24. James says:

    Some people take things too seriously.
    Some is true. Much is just possibility.

  25. John can take a feather out of their hat and learn to be even more evil.. 😀 That’s how they succeed in what they do, don’t they?

  26. Dave says:

    Personally, I don’t buy it.

    You could make a “ZOMG” video like this about any major corporation. Probably worse than Google.

    1. Very true – every company uses focus groups, but I guess they don’t read your mail too…

      1. Dave says:

        Plenty of places to get email from, if you think Google is going to spy on you 🙂

        (More likely they don’t really care about your correspondence)

  27. I wouldn’t doubt if Google was that evil.

    1. Dave says:

      I’ll believe it when they try to take over the world 😛

  28. Catmoves says:

    😕 Got a good laugh here…when it loaded. I seem to have a problem with You Tube videos, however. They load piecemeal, never play correctly until I rerun what I’ve already seen in bits and pieces. Why can’t the vid masters have them load completely so we are not forced to watch them twice?

  29. Jeff says:

    Google = the root of not evil

    Jeff –

  30. I think it’s very…creative and engaging. It felt like watching a movie by the Wachowski brothers for a while there. 😎
