Only Android phones can use the mobile version of Buzz? Mobile Safari begs to differ.
sorry, I forgot. iPhones = JesusPhones.lemme rephrase: us users of MORTAL phones can't use buzz.well, at least I can't find a way to do it on my Centro.
This is not a shot at JMad, I know I kid him a lot:www.google.com/healthSincere reaction: Creepy
It launched. I thought the backlash would cook it for sure.Now you have to make sure every time you sign a HIPAA form that they don't use google health.
Of course, having a central health database represent a huge leap forward for the efficiency and effectiveness of medical care. No more filling out redundant paperwork every time you visit an office, stuff you can't possibly recall 100% accurately. Any pharmacist would know what other drugs you're on, docs could see your entire medical history at a glance, etc. Massive cost reductions in eliminating the silo personal information, and improvements in care by making relevant information readily available to health care providers.
But why should google be able to use that info for targeted ads? AETNA lets you send your health history to a doctor before you show up, and HMO's have done very well, too.It's the next step towards a health-based credit score IMO, and I'm against any private company running the database with no controls.
I wasn't commenting on Google specifically, only on the obvious benefits a national health registry of some sort could provide.How would Aetna know my health history now? I might have had them a couple of times over the last 30 years, maybe they can remember a little bit here or there, but not everything.
Not to mention Pizza places telling you what you can and can't order I know I know, very old (and likely overblown) schtick. Just seemed appropriate
