Google’s South Korean Offices Raided…Again


If the headline at all sounds familiar, let’s take a trip back to May. South Korean police raided Google’s local offices in response to suspicions of illegally obtained data (we’ll re-use the illustrative image above for the purposes of this article, well, because it sure is funny to see sub-machine gun wielding Segway riders). The Korean people obviously have a problem with people snooping around in personal data that doesn’t belong to them, as a regulatory group has once again raided Google’s South Korean offices. Little explanation is given in a report issued by Reuters, but it seems Android might be involved this time. Google released a statement promising full cooperation with the Korean Fair Trade Commission, going on to state that it does not require Android manufacturers to include Google applications, including search, on their devices.

    1. -Id love to see the carnage after tossing a few sticks on the ground
      -Is this the set of Mall Cop 2 (sorry, had to take a twist on one of yours)

  9. Perhaps the Korean people aren’t as ignorant as Americans… letting people you don’t know snoop around in data that doesn’t belong to them… I’m an American… but, if we don’t wake up someone is going to know what you do, where you go, what you eat, what you watch… all the time… in fact, they already do…
