Heinz Gruber:
>but I take it as a sign that Google’s leadership is starting to realize how much damage they’ve done to the company’s reputation

Corporate customers drove this policy change but somehow Grubs manages to take from this that Google's "leadership" suddenly had a revelation about user privacy.

Gruber likes to pretend Google executives go to bed in tears, ashamed of themselves, and dream that Apple would hire them to would free them of their sins.

How does a Google exec sleep at night?

Probably with a pillow between their legs and on top of a Casper mattress.

Was Google reading Donald Trump's mail in his private Gmail account?

It's a question that has to be asked. This is an issue that won't go away.

> Google Will Stop Reading Your Emails for Gmail Ads

But it will continue to read them for phishing and spam protection. And maybe for other purposes.

Probably, Google who dominates the cloud e-mail, but has failed to become a prominent player in end-to-end encrypted messaging, wants to downplay the essential difference between the two types of p2p communications.
