GOOGLE is the official statement to the provisions of the content to make a more streamlined, easy to understand, and will be connected with your Google Account linked data integration services for users. And because of this adjustment, so many people think that Google’s move will affect the user’s personal privacy, then the United States Congress began to focus on the matter.
For this case, Google is currently the official clarification, mainly reiterated that the user will not sell personal information, and ensure that the information of the occult, in addition also shows that even without a Google account login, users can still maintain the use of search, enjoy online YouTube videos or Google Maps and other online services, while controlling for some privacy, Google also provides personal settings to keep the project, allowing users to control the exposure of personal privacy, and do not want to see settingsAdvertisingContent, other users’ personal information will not be sold to cooperative advertising companies.
Google’s long letter to this can be summarized as the following five points:
Point 1: Google, as always, will not sell your personal data
Google mentioned several times in the letter to stakeholders that it will not sell your personal data. For example, Google said, “We do not sell user data”, “We will not sell user information”, “Google will not sell, trade or rent personally identifiable user information.”
In other words, even though Google to track users and to provide long-term use of high frequency according to the search keywords release of targeted advertising, but Google that it will not sell to third-party advertisers personal information, so users do not have to worry about their preferences by advertising company informed.
Point 2: If involved in phishing attacks, users are still at risk
U.S. lawmakers cited the White House staff Gmail account last year’s event was attacked, questioned whether Google has taken new security measures to prevent the sharing in Gmail mailbox,Search engineAnd YouTubeVideo siteThe information was leaked, Google’s answer is: “unlikely.”
In other words, if the user’s Gmail account was phishing attacks, but the user did not enable Google’s two-step certification tools, then it is possible hacker access to Gmail information can also invade the entire Google account. In other words, if you Gmail inbox search terms based on frequent advertisement published, then the hacker most likely know your search history, and then get Google + and YouTube accounts.
Point 3: The user can still Google unknowingly use to search Google and YouTube
Google said in the letter: “Only after the user logs in Google account information will be associated with specific users if the user uses two different Google accounts, such as an account for work and private life for an account, then Google does not will use the information to one account associated with another account. ”
Point 4: The network tracking, users still have enough choice
If you want to search anonymously, not only out of Gmail account, you can also take the privacy of other control measures, such as the user can turn off search history, the use of advertising priorities Manager (Ads Preference Manager) in the search results and do not want to stop your inbox see the ads, you can also use the Google Dashboard stored in the information Google account to edit.
Point 5: If you do not like the new policy, the user can abandon Google
Although Google does not want to see this, but it recognizes that the user is still disgruntled one of the options. There are many search engine marketing, e-mail clients and social networks, no one is forcing users to use Gmail or Google +. If you do not wish to use Google services, simply delete the Google account and use Google’s “Data Release” (Data Liberation) website e-mail all your personal information.

Things have from the “words do not fly” in the global PC industry leader Hewlett-Packard to start.
August 23, 2011, in the reported sales and profit forecast lower than expected, HP has been used to represent this star of the U.S. Silicon Valley company announced its intention to spin off its PC business.
The news came out, the industry outcry. You know, in the last fiscal year, PC business to Hewlett-Packard contributed $ 40.74 billion in revenue, the company which is equivalent to about one third of total revenue. Data show that in 2008 global notebook output of 1.6 million units in 2011 has grown to 300 million units.
U.S. CNET columnist Brooke Crothers wrote: “HP abandon the PC business, as is the world’s fast-food giant McDonald’s do not sell hamburgers, or the U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing and Airbus compete for tired and leave its aircraft manufacturing business in general not unusual. ”
So, what causes led to a major enterprise PC business income depends actually considering selling the business?
In accordance with normal business logic, not a world leader in the field of vendors willing to withdraw from the market because of its leading position generally have considerable profitability, and this leader is spending billions of dollars more than the cost to obtained.
This also led to the stand for the Hewlett-Packard, the market response is completely one-sided: only 20% of HP’s stock price fell, the sound also followed a variety of questions: What is HP’s sleeve medicine? PC industry in crisis? If it split , who will take over? Dell or Lenovo, or Samsung?
Prior to spin-off linked to the IBM PC hardware and dedicated software and services, do not know the true intentions and the future of HP’s strategic situation, “ton output capacity” was once used to describe the move and follow the example of Hewlett-Packard IBM has long been considered the principles of HP’s strategy formulation one.
However, in the outside world is not completely clear case of HP’s true intentions, just a week later, HP actually has “go back on.”
August 25, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced his resignation after the micro-Bo on a widely circulated video , HP vice president, China including Hong Kong General Manager Zhang Yongli Group, HP’s external clarify some of the market HP might not sound correct expression of the purpose of this strategic transformation, suggesting that HP will continue to focus on the PC business. About a month later, CNBC, according to foreign media reports, Hewlett-Packard Chairman Ray Rhine (Ray Lane) local time on Friday in an interview made it clear that: “We do not intend to exit the PC market.”
This is strange, why the same company, even a short time two distinct voices emerge? Microblogging is that someone says to him: the authors is that Steve Jobs left the news, Hewlett-Packard “undo” a?
Undo may be exaggerated, says Steve Jobs of Apple for HP to create the threat posed by the past two years, Apple, with its excellent product performance hurricane, but the HP rely on the traditional basis of the PC world, but also achieve significant growth.
So where is the problem in the end? According to the author’s speculation, there is only one possible, that is inconsistent sound HP, in fact, are their true thoughts. To put it plainly, HP would like as soon as possible from the PC industry on the one hand, the other brings out the PC industry did not want to. If this is not well understood, OK, this is like the film industry after the year 2000, the film market continues strong growth, but wound up in the technical and functional aspects are also a bit rough crappy digital camera, although there is no growth film fast, but the film has the death sentence is not important and objective short-term profit growth, but long-term outcome.
Outcome is well known that less than 5 years, film industry leader Kodak, Fuji digital camera in the face of total defeat. Although today Fuji still exist, but their main business is not the film as early as after the revolution and positive self-transformation, Fuji the medical life sciences, high-performance materials, optical components, electronic imaging, document processing and printing as a new direction. His old rival Kodak, the film stick to the slow transformation, are living together with the film itself, which has gradually become a touch of history memories. According to media reports, 97% six years evaporated, leaving only the market value of Kodak is now $ 190 million in market capitalization, deplorable, desolate.
Do not pull too far back to our first topic, if the film industry than for the PC industry, then the present is concerned, that is, ten years ago, Hewlett-Packard, Kodak, Dell is Fuji, Lenovo is Lucky. This view HP’s inconsistent, “tangle psychological” probably will be better understood and more.
That being the case, for the PC industry, who is the elimination of film digital camera do?
The answer is a smart phone, the jargon is called mobile Internet terminal equipment.
Since it is one, then surely there are other. Prior to the Jobs, PC is undoubtedly the leader in the Internet terminal device, because both the technical maturity, stability and performance, in particular, the search function of the whole preparation of the information, integrate information, send and receive information, and editing information, etc. from every aspect, PC is the ability of this era’s best Internet information carrier.
However, the “living will change the world” Joe closer to lead Apple to fulfill the goal of his life, he used to iPhone, iPad, represented by a series of excellent products, a declaration of fact: the world belongs to the PC, but also belongs to the Tablet PC, but the world is ultimately part of the smart phone.
This is under a lot of people do not agree, and obviously Lenovo, Dell’s future growth space for the PC promises, although the boss HP entangled, but not still remains with the Chongqing Municipal Government signed a 20 million annual export laptop settled agreement?
In this regard, the Internet software giant Microsoft seems to be the attitude clear: even behind the PC!
Microsoft’s public relations director Frank Kershaw said recently: “Recently I saw a lot of media” post-PC “view of the resurgence of the current, the content creation work is, PC is still the best implementation tool. In addition to Beyond this, the content consumer and communications and other areas of obvious advantages Tablet PC, PC is also doing a better job. ”
For Microsoft, this argument, the Lenovo PC business last quarter on the “rich harvest” seems to be corroborated. While the other PC industry heavyweights Dell’s CEO has also been given support: “Good-bye, Hewlett-Packard for you do not want to stay in the PC world I regret that, but we will do better.”
So, I found what the world is ultimately a part of the smart phone for?
Look at a set of data, the results so that everyone was shocked! (Foreign body, an Internet statistics compiled some representative of the statistical data, and analysis to the public the day, people use different types of equipment for Internet access time distribution.)
The original, as a general get up from 6 am to 10 pm to sleep, most people close to ten hour day will frequently use terminal equipment (desktops and notebooks, PAD and other types of tablet PCs, smart phones) to access Internet, in which ten hours of which, most desktop and notebook less than 4 hours and increasing downward trend, while the Tablet PC and smart phone mobile terminal device, the 4 to 6 hours, and on the rise.
The results seem surprising, but actually not that difficult to understand. Comparison can be placed in bed and kitchen table, can be put into the pocket and in any place in the environment are free to use (bus or subway trains and other transport aircraft, lying in bed or sitting on the kitchen table) to access the Internet smart phones, PC appears to formal and rigid, fixed and bulky.
If the hardware aspects of the smart phone purely human, and not entirely caused by a powerful PC to death, after all, for office workers, there are at least five hours a day is spent sitting at his desk. However, as microblogging and the rise of social networking sites, similar to the iPhone is more adept and adapt to these software applications and services, smart phone, its re-interpretation of the mobile Internet terminal equipment, is with the real “anytime, anywhere with the nature of the” Access Internet and processing, exchange information and let the PC makers are alarmed.
Another factor is the PC’s own “commercialization.” Today’s notebook computers on a technical level, though more as the year of color television technology advances, but the technological advances brought about by declining premium profits, the overall commodity prices are falling.
According to IDC statistics show that increasingly the traditional weak PC sales growth, second quarter 2011, an increase of only 2.6% of the PC. Intense competition has squeezed the PC manufacturer’s price and profit margins. Manufacturers such as Hewlett-Packard’s PC business profit margin is only 2-6%, while Apple’s Mac computers are up to 14% profit margin to 17%. But even if the Mac has a much higher than traditional PC profit margins, Apple CEO Steve Jobs is still in the June 2011 meeting of WDDC publicly stated: “We will put the secondary PC and Mac’s position. ”
So, what is the main location? The answer is obvious, Jobs placed in the main position, and will not be anything else, is certainly smart phones.
A lot of market research shows that the Apple iPhone and iPad as the representative of smart phones, tablet computers, a new generation of mobile Internet terminal device is attracting more and more consumers, leading consumers to give up these notebooks, which makes the PC business lost a major driving force. Apple in June of this year’s earnings conference call on that in the “Fortune” 500 companies, 91% of companies have adopted or are testing the iPhone, 86% of enterprises are using or testing the iPad. And it is this trend may be the Hewlett-Packard decided to exit the PC business a key factor.
Just think, if the technical and functional level, the smart phone just tied the PC according to the current technology trends and speed do not have to achieve this goal may, in time, then think about a decade ago began trying to contact people from the digital camera, to the final because the “experience” and the film quickly and completely give up the time machine, perhaps a good understanding of livelihood for their own HP PC, for the Ru this tangle.
More straightforward to say, PC is still strong growth, but it is dying.
Therefore, from the perspective of the development of mobile Internet, Jobs with smart phones and tablet PCs not only leather Motorola, Nokia and other handset manufacturers of traditional life, but also give HP as the representative of the traditional PC-makers sounded the alarm . HP clearly see this fact, for HP, IBM to a thorough study of business strategy transformation is not entirely impossible, but then again, PC industry is also a strong period of rise, their main income from a PC and also have to in the end not to continue the development of the PC industry, may really bad decision.
Another fact is, back in 2002, as IBM CEO Sam Palmisano had predicted: “PC era will be gone, the future will be the sensors and smart phone world.”
Of course, Steve Jobs-led revolution is clearly not yet complete. Represented by the iPhone and iPad tablet computers, smart phones and the Internet, mobile devices, the positioning is more a part of the PC blend of functionality (browse the Internet, instant messaging, e-mail, games, entertainment, etc.) which is different from traditional phones (core the communications function), and through the perfect combination of hardware and software, and ultimately a premium product.
So, really you can completely replace the PC smart phones who are most likely to come from hands?
The answer is Google.
HP on the development in the PC industry, “gone back” about a week ago, August 15, 2011, the Internet search company Google astronomical price of $ 12.5 billion acquisition of the famous mobile company Motorola, which has led up to half the world’s mobile communications industry for centuries.
While the industry and even Google CEO Pei Liqi I claim to be “as many as 17,000 to Motorola’s acquisition of patents,” but I always doubt my heart: Google to buy the entire Motorola mobile, and this is a great dilemma of being caught a long history of large companies, are Google only saw 17,000 patents, while not considered likely to make itself into a big company’s difficulties, and even affect Google’s own development of the strategic risk? For the latter, Google if there is no clear considerations and ideas, so this acquisition, no matter how lucrative patent, but that is only short-sighted and immediate, more can not be called clever.
September 16, 2011, held in Beijing “2011 China Innovative Marketing Google Forum”, I overheard a few words, a few figures, eyes suddenly light up.
Day, refined appearance of Google’s global vice president John Liu, in his speech, he stated: “In the mobile Internet era, information become increasingly flat, with the phone, PAD and other growing mobile intelligent terminal, the user is no longer a single contact, Therefore, the dependence on the PC continues to weaken. ”
And iResearch is co-president and COO Ruanjing Wen said, China’s Internet penetration rate of over 40%, more than 500 million Internet users, preliminary statistics 2011 more than 530 million Internet users here, of course, refers to a person with a PC, Internet, Ruan Jingwen Then said, China is using the phone number to reach nearly 10 million, with the popularization of smart phones, more and more Internet users are using mobile phones rather than PC Internet browsing and retrieval of information.
Obviously, in the patents, this for Google to provide Internet search services and information companies, are willing to spend $ 12.5 billion price is another important reason is: the layout through the purchase of Motorola mobile to mobile Internet terminals, so as to the future of Internet users in the choice of terminal equipment by the PC to the Tablet PC and smart phones ahead of the layout.
Google phone look like it?
Google’s a publicity booklet, tells the user holding a Google phone, you can Google a variety of Internet products and services to meet from 6:00 up to 23:00 pm during sleep, all the information needed.
Clearly, the Google phone is built in, providing a complete living information solutions, this idea is not only than the iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices as the Internet all the functionality and leading, and as truly a “people together with the equipment an “anytime, anywhere that is free to use the Internet and eventually replace PC.

Today is the State Oceanic Administration requires completion of ConocoPhillips’ oil spill risk point of thorough investigation, completely blocking oil source “requirements last time. ConocoPhillips can not fully meet the requirements on time, the answer will soon be announced. Experts believe that under the current situation, ConocoPhillips is difficult to fully meet the 31 requirements of the State Oceanic Administration.
ConocoPhillips company official on August 30 “Business News”Reporters said the platform of Penglai 19-3 oil field C of total oil-based mud has been cleared more than 99%, B platform permeability of the fault has occurred a permanent closure. 31 day clean-up plugging the situation would be announced, the investigation report submitted to the State Oceanic Administration.
For ConocoPhillips plugging the upcoming clean-up the situation and submit the investigation report, the relevant person in charge of the State Oceanic Administration, August 30, told reporters that the commission experts for assessment and feasibility studies, and this process takes time, so may not immediately make judgments on the conclusions of ConocoPhillips.
ConocoPhillips or difficult compliance
State Oceanic Administration’s requirements for ConocoPhillips’ oil spill risk thorough investigation point, completely blocking oil spill source “, what makes it completely standard?
Penglai 19-3 oil field B, C platform after an oil spill occurs, ConocoPhillips on the B platform to take measures to reduce formation pressure, and cast a set of oil cover; place kick on the C platform operations through the cementing wells plug to block. These measures were completed before the beginning of July or start. The State Oceanic Administration of these measures in early August to early questioned, that the above measures are only temporary measures to cut off the oil spill source.
ConocoPhillips company official said, in addition to the above measures, ConocoPhillips is near the B platform drilling a horizontal well, and wells to raise the level of cement in order to ensure that faults will not leak again. But ConocoPhillips continues to believe that the measures taken in June has made the permanent closure occurred permeability of the fault, and now measures just double insurance. In addition, ConocoPhillips said, also on the C platform set near undersea oil cover is installed, and is drilling a drainage well, in order to extract sand in the shallow reservoir is still fluid.
“B platform not really find fault, oil cover only a temporary measure, B platform, not really the fault block, the possibility of future oil spills have occurred.” Shandong University at Weihai Marine Institute, Associate Professor Wang Yamin told reporters , from the current situation, ConocoPhillips did not invest sufficient human and material resources to carry out a thorough investigation and block work, it is difficult in full before August 31 to complete the requirements of the State Oceanic Administration.
Wang Yamin said that the geological structure of the Bohai Sea is more complex, the occurrence of oil spills after the pressure change in the sea bottom, more complex geological conditions, risks of oil spills point to a thorough investigation, blocking oil spill source is very difficult. Conoco’s current measures are almost always palliative measures, the relevant departments should strengthen supervision.
Environmental damage or to expand
As of August 29, C platform, the total daily oil leaking around 1-2 l, B a mixture of oil and gas platforms daily exudation of about 1 liter. Experts fear that oil spills cause environmental damage will continue to expand, but the Conoco oil company that does not have a material impact on the coast.
ConocoPhillips held on October 24 media conference that a total of 56 oil samples collected, of which only two samples and Penglai 19-3 oil field is directly related, there are three crude oil samples and oil spill points similar. The ConocoPhillips announcement on August 29 said, has collected 75 samples, but still only two oil samples directly related to the three oil samples are similar. That is not found on the coastline from new oil fields to increase oil sample.
However, marine experts say this does not mean this to stop the oil spill.China Petroleum[9.88 -0.40% Share it Research report]University (East China), Professor of Ocean Engineering, said Chen Jianmin, State Oceanic Administration should make a third body at the same time issued a report on oil spill clean up the situation, not only a statement ConocoPhillips, the expansion of marine environmental pollution is inevitable, the relevant departments claims to be ongoing.
Wang Yamin said that the spill of crude oil composition is very complex, and some material may be mixed with water into one of the, and drifting with the sea spread to more places. The fisheries sector should carry out monitoring and early warning, prevention of coastal fishermen suffered greater losses.
Pacific Century law firm in mid-August to accept the 200 fishermen’s agent, but the slow progress of the claim. The firm Media Contact Mengxiao Juan told reporters, still with the identification of bodies and relevant government departments to communicate and consult, so far there is no identification of bodies and government departments issued conclusive evidence for the fishermen, the claim is not full of odds, so litigation has not been officially launched.
The afternoon of August 17, Changli County farmers have damaged the Ministry of Agriculture jointly issued an open letter to “request the investigation and handling according to law Changli scallop pollution deaths reported,” request the Ministry of Agriculture the statutory duty, to intervene Changli fishery pollution accidents survey and to publish the results as soon as possible. As of August 30, the Ministry of Agriculture has not this clear. Related personnel, said a specific response to be made in the Bureau of Fisheries.

Google this month, about 1,000 to IBM’s acquisition of patents, increase their number of patents.
Google local time on July 28, said in an e-mail statement, “and many high-tech companies, we sometimes buy with our business-related patents.”
Google Android mobile operating system is attracted at least six lawsuits, Google increased the number of patents increased, the need to defend the company. Google also plans to curb the trend of abuse of the patent system, called on the U.S. Congress and the Federal Trade Commission laws, asked the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office scrutiny involved in patent litigation.
Google General Counsel Kent Walker (KentWalker) in an interview earlier this week that “high-tech industry, there are serious problems, software patents affect innovation.”
Competitors have said, Google the reason why the patent system is critical, because it is the lack of patents, the Android phone as early as 2008, before the sale, many R & D, sales of smart phones has been a few years.
Android is a free open source software that allows external developers to modify their code, which makes Google very susceptible to patent infringement litigation.
As of June, Google held $ 39.1 billion in cash and short-term investments, announced in April bid $ 900 million acquisition of Nortel’s proprietary program, however, including Apple, Microsoft and RIM, including a consortium bid $ 4.5 billion to overcome the Google acquisition of Nortel’s patents.
