    I got as far as the second paragraph, which consists of the following quote from a Google VP:

    “I’m not going to talk about Recall, but I think the reason that some people feel it’s creepy is when it doesn’t feel useful, and it doesn’t feel like something they initiated or that they get a clear benefit from it”

    That’s somehow worse than I imagined. I can at least understand being intentionally sinister, or overtly anti-privacy, but that level of delusion is somehow actually more terrifying.

      I can imagine those guys arguing about “legitimate interests” because data that isn’t monetised is worthless or something.

      I know we’re all thinking it, but people paying attention feel that way because… it’s creepy, it’s not useful, it’s not something they initiated, and they don’t get a clear benefit from it.
