Google Announces Plan To Destroy All Information It Can't Index

Google Announces Plan To Destroy All Information It Can't Index. A little fun for the post-holiday return to work.

The Onion has this report on evil plans that Google has afoot including book burning and the creation of a robot army to carry out DNA scanning on humanity. This is obvious satire. However, some people are so anti-Google that I am sure this will feed the paranoia...

From the site:

Executives at Google, the rapidly growing online-search company that promises to "organize the world's information," announced Monday the latest step in their expansion effort: a far-reaching plan to destroy all the information it is unable to index.

"Our users want the world to be as simple, clean, and accessible as the Google home page itself," said Google CEO Eric Schmidt at a press conference held in their corporate offices. "Soon, it will be."

The new project, dubbed Google Purge, will join such popular services as Google Images, Google News, and Google Maps, which catalogs the entire surface of the Earth using high-resolution satellites.

As a part of Purge's first phase, executives will destroy all copyrighted materials that cannot be searched by Google.
