Android M could give users more privacy controls



Google's next smartphone OS, Android M, could boost the ability for users to control what happens to their data.

Google I/O takes place at the end of this month, but precious little is known about the software that will likely be at its core - Android M.

One recent Bloomberg report points to a possible area of focus from Google - privacy.

According to the report, Android M will give users "more detailed choices" over what personal data apps can access. This could include photos, your location, or your contacts.

At present when you download an Android app, you are notified of the data the app will access. You're then given a simple choice - download or don't download.

With Android M, the suggestion goes, you'll be able to determine the precise data individual apps have access to without being forced into such a binary choice.

As SlashGear points out, such options have been present in the Android code in the past, but Google has kept it hidden from most users in the name of app stability. Now it could be set to push those options front and centre.

One thing we do know from Google's leaked Google I/O agenda is that "Android for Work" will be a big focus. Increasing a user's power over data privacy would certainly tally with a push into more businesses.

The Era of Absolute Privacy is coming! No need in cookies or browsing history anymore.

I discovered and patented how to structure any data: Language has its own Internal parsing, indexing and statistics. For instance, there are two sentences:

a) ‘Fire!’
b) ‘Dismay and anguish were depicted on every countenance; the males turned pale, and the females fainted; Mr. Snodgrass and Mr. Winkle grasped each other by the hand, and gazed at the spot where their leader had gone down, with frenzied eagerness; while Mr. Tupman, by way of rendering the promptest assistance, and at the same time conveying to any persons who might be within hearing, the clearest possible notion of the catastrophe, ran off across the country at his utmost speed, screaming ‘Fire!’ with all his might.’
Evidently, that the phrase ‘Fire!’ has different importance into both sentences, in regard to extra information in both. This distinction is reflected as the phrase weights: the first has 1, the second – 0.02; the greater weight signifies stronger emotional ‘acuteness’.
First you need to parse obtaining phrases from clauses, for sentences and paragraphs.
Next, you calculate Internal statistics, weights; where the weight refers to the frequency that a phrase occurs in relation to other phrases.
After that data is indexed by common dictionary, like Webster, and annotated by subtexts.
This is a small sample of the structured data:
this - signify - <> : 333333
both - are - once : 333333
confusion - signify - <> : 333321
speaking - done - once : 333112
speaking - was - both : 333109
place - is - in : 250000
To see the validity of technology - pick up any sentence.

Do you have a pencil?

All other technologies depend on spying, on quires, on SQL, all of them, finding statistics. See IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Google and Yahoo? Apache Hadoop and NoSQL? My technology is the only one that obtains statistics from texts themselves.

You must not expect from Google to value your privacy: Google's technology is based on the spying.

Being structured information will search for users based on their profiles of structured data. Each and every user can get only specifically tailored for him information: there is no any privacy issue, nobody ever will know what the user got and read.

My technology exploits the Laws of Nature, which determine the inner construction of all Languages: I came from Analytic Philosophy, from Internal Relations Theory.
