I really don't feel like Surveillance Capitalism exists. It's just plain old Capitalism. Yes, Google is tackling privacy for their own ends. However, we shouldn't be knocking the fact that the end result is a good thing. Unlike Facebook who has no incentive to add privacy focused features.

It's Capitalism itself that we should be pissed off at, not Google specifically.
