Data Removal Service

Click here to see full infographic.

Google compiles and holds vast amounts of the world's data.  It's supposed to be totally private but sometimes governments need that information for investigations and they request it rom Google.  Other times, governments find a piece of data offensive or erroneous, and request that Google remove it from its database entirely. The search giant makes all these requests public.  This is a look at which countries ask Google for the most information on its users, which ask Google to remove the most information and how often Google gives information.  China considers any request to Google to be a state secret.  Google, therefore, does not publish the number of its requests. 

Google Voice vintage phone booths

Google introduce old style phone booths across America in locations such as busy college campuses and airports, to advertise the Google Voice calling feature which can be accessed through your Gmail account.  These Google voice phone boxes are completely free to use, and aim to get people to use Google Voice, and see how the quality compares to alternatives.
