Default Google wants to control our computers?

I'd rather they just sent me a popup saying there's a software upgrade and I should install it. I am very wary of the word "control."

As you should be. You clicked "Deny", or better yet, shut it down via Task Manager, right?

More like 85 Pete. I passed. The guy I worked with brother is a partner at Kleiner Perkins and told me to buy and I didn't. I was an idiot.
