Google corner

This week Google decided they take over (what's left of) the world:
http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/10/26/google-voice-can-now-take-control-of-your-mobile-voicemail/
First - they'll take your voice mail

http://lifehacker.com/5390307/google-launches-social-search-experiment-to-search-what-your-friends-are-posting
Then they'll take your social graph

http://gizmodo.com/5391043/android-20-official-its-the-android-weve-been-waiting-for

This proves the saying: "You're only safe untill google does it."

'Till next week
