Problematic; Privilege; Ignorance;

Betteridge's law of headlines applies here: no.

Focusing on enterprise and healthcare customers instead of consumers that clearly don't want this (at the moment) isn't a death knell, it's likely the only way they're actually going to make money. Which is now the goal given that part of this story is moving out of Google X.
