CEOs on privacy
An Apple user sent an email to Steve Jobs:
"I was just wondering if you have any plans for Blu-ray in the mac lineup for those of us who want to be able to share our HD video."

Steve Jobs [CEO of Apple] responded:
YouTube now supports HD video.


Scott McNealy [ex-CEO of Sun Microsystems]
You already have zero privacy - get over it.


Larry Ellison [CEO of Oracle]
Well, this privacy you're concerned about is largely an illusion. All you have to give up is your illusions, not any of your privacy. Right now, you can go onto the Internet and get a credit report about your neighbor and find out where your neighbor works, how much they earn and if they had a late mortgage payment and tons of other information.


Eric Schmidt [CEO of Google]
If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines -- including Google -- do retain this information for some time and it's important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities.
A relatively small of data was collected and this was not authorised. We stopped driving immediately. There appears to be no use of data. It's sitting on a hard drive. We will not delete [the collected data] until ordered to do so.


Mark Zuckerberg [CEO of Facebook]
The way that people think about privacy is changing a bit. What people want isn't complete privacy. It isn't that they want secrecy. It's that they want control over what they share and what they don't.
The mission of the company is to make the world more open and connected.
We're building a web where the default is social.


Steve Ballmer [CEO of Microsoft]
Mark [Zuckerberg] is a good guy.
