From the source:

Quote:
It's an admission that appears to have caught Google's devices chief by surprise.

After being challenged as to whether homeowners should tell guests smart devices - such as a Google Nest speaker or Amazon Echo display - are in use before they enter the building, he concludes that the answer is indeed yes.

"Gosh, I haven't thought about this before in quite this way," Rick Osterloh begins.

More than 1,000 Googlers signed a letter demanding the search giant cuts ties with climate-change deniers
Here's the highlights:
Quote:
Google employees published an open letter with more than 1,000 signatories on Monday demanding the company take a stronger line on climate change.
The letter demanded that Google commit to zero emissions by 2030, cut ties with the fossil-fuel industry, stop funding climate-denying lobbyists and politicians, and have no relationship with organizations involved in oppressing "refugees or frontline communities."
While Google likes to tout its green initiatives, it has also donated to think tanks and lobbying groups that push back against climate-change legislation, and Gizmodo reported early this year on its aggressive push into big oil.
Whatever happened to that whole "Don't be evil," thing, I recall from yester-year? The curse of being old.

May, 2018: Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause From Its Code of Conduct

Oh, well it's cool then

In defence of those Google employees (not ES obviously, who is indefensible), you don't hear so much about F******k employees demanding that their company act better.

Experienced software engineers can easily be replaced by former coal miners with a code bootcamp tho.
