What the hell is that?

Quick! No Googling allowed: who said –

The chief executive officer of **************** said Monday that consumer privacy issues are a “red herring.”

“You have zero privacy anyway,” ************ told a group of reporters and analysts Monday night at an event to launch his company’s new…technology. “Get over it.”

Be honest – did you remember? ’cause it was a damn sight ago… 1

Some of us old farts remember when actual privacy was commonplace, more – expected. 2 But today? I think this sums the situation nicely:

“Dammit, your employer can make you take a physical. They can run a credit check. They can make you urinate in a Dixie cup. They can make you wear orange spandex short shorts and a crop top, and you’re worried that they might see those pictures of you naked at that pool party with a lampshade on your head and shotgunning Ernest & Julio’s best straight from the spigot on the box?

“Honey, thirty seconds after you put those pictures on the internet, some teenager in Latvia was wanking to them and /b/tards were using them to make lolcats. The privacy horse is out of the barn, down the road, over the horizon, and the Visigoths have burned the barn, and NOW you’re worried about it? Just for that, you ought to get a groping AND a porn-o-scan the next time you’re at the airport!”

    Be thankful it wasn’t the Ostrogoths. Those feckers would be gang-raping the horse and burning the barn.
