Google Buys Fitbit

The Article

Google Might Buy Fitbit
I have said it many times that once a company has your data you cannot get it back, and if that company sells, the new company has that data. What if Google now buys FitBit and thus collects all your personal health data? Are you comfortable with such a company, which has been building a health trackign arm, having all your health data? Also, Australia finally has a plan to keep bad stuff away from kids online, spotify has a new kids app, and more.
