CORRECTION: There’s incredible power to data in the hands of companies operating at immense scale.
It’s why there’s now a movement to limit this,
why companies like Digi.me, who I’ve previously mistaken for a data collection company, actually let users manage and safeguard their
information.

Bing is laughed at but it’s actually a profitable product, which demonstrates the power of the control tech companies can have.

*The end of this video includes a paid sponsored promotion. This company had no part in the writing, editing, or production of the rest of the video.

*Clarification: The top Bing searches at the beginning is from a satire website (although I suspect they're not far off from the truth) https://www.thebeaverton.com/2012/07/...
