Google's Chairman is pretty sure the users' data is safe with the search engine
If you are going to believe very word Eric Schmidt said, then you might as well think that your data is the safest with Google even if the NSA is after it they cant find it. CNBC recently reported that the chairman of the search giant was completely sure that all the data of the users is pretty safe with Google.
"We are pretty sure the information that is inside of Google right now is safe from prying eyes, especially the government," he said during a panel in Austin. "We think your data is very safe."
Some Chinese hackers had continuously tried to get into the information system of Google and the search giant was capable enough to fight off all their efforts. The chairman also confirmed that Google has intensified its encryption processes since there were rumors about the NSA spying revelations according to a report by CNBC. Such a step was on its way earlier as well but the processes were made to speed up by Google after the possible NSA threats. The chairman also said a few words regarding the backlash against in the wealthy tech industry in San Francisco which resulted in many protests against the shuttle buses firms for the workers;
"We are very, very worried about this issue and the data suggests that the problem could get worse," Schmidt said, according to the Washington Post. "If you look at the most recent studies of American economic growth, 99 percent of the people saw essentially no economic improvement over the last decade."

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
