Google CEO: After an Extensive Investigation, We Have Determined That the Russian Campaign Against the Very Foundations of Our Democracy Spent... Four Thousand, Seven Hundred Dollars on Ads. Total.

Well. Let's do what the leftwingers and cuck neocons want and drop a few Unscheduled Sunrise bombs on Moscow then, huh?

Russia spent as much money on ads to "compromise" our election as the average teenager spends on a used scooter.

Pinchai refused to answer whether a smart phone could be used to track his movements across the room:

For example, Rep. Ted Poe (R­–TX) held his iPhone aloft and repeatedly demanded whether Google would be able to use his phone to track him if he moved across the room. In response, Pichai began to explain that it depends what apps and services he has on his phone and what permissions he gave them.

Poe sharply cut him off: "This is a yes or no question."

Pichai tried again … it depends. “I genuinely don’t know without knowing what services-- "

"It's not a trick question -- you make $100 million a year, you ought to be able to answer that question!" Poe yelled. "I'm shocked you don’t know...most Americans don't know what this phone can do."

The typical Twitter Pests are making an issue that Poe was asking about an iPhone rather than an Android phone, the latter being the one made by Google, but of course an Android phone is designed to be a tracking device in your pocket, and Pichai understood what Poe was asking about.
