"Like the Soviet state, Google does not forget."

Useful Void: The Art of Forgetting in the Age of Ubiquitous Computing. Like they said in Strange Days, "Memories are meant to fade. They're designed that way for a reason."

Maybe computers, like people, should be designed to forget.

When do you think we'll see handheld devices that really parallel the capabilities of a desktop computer?
