The Evils of Google

I for a while now have made it clear to people I’m not a fan of Google and for that reason will not invest in the Google platform.

It’s interesting to see people’s reactions to that statement when I tell them in person. It ranges from a simple “Oh” to a “I don’t see why” (usually followed by how great they are) to “I concur” (admittedly it’s more then that but you get the idea)

One of the big problems that face major entertainment based companies these days is piracy, now I have heard of many many ways of the industry combating this problem, some good, some really really bad (invasion of privacy sort of bad). While I don’t know much about the industry as a consumer looking at the problem from the outside my solution would be something like the system I’m about to outline

Before going further its key to point out that the principles of this system relies on cloud computing/storage and Digital Rights Management Software (DRM). For those who don’t know much about these I’ll give you the quickest break down here after the jump but if you want to know more Google will be useful.
