A bass and a bass aren't the same. One is a fish while the other is played by a musician. That's why Google is working on a personalised search engine that studies a user's past queries to better serve him in the future.
But to the US government, every Peter Johnson is a terrorist. Never mind that there are more than 2,000 confirmed cases of Peter Johnson who have no intention of blowing up planes, building, people or combinations thereof. But they will get into enormous trouble every time they try to board an airplane nonetheless.
Not convinced? The Transport Safety Authority actually refuse a 9 month old baby to board an airplane because his name matched that of a suspected terrorist.
Doesn't it make you feel comfortable to know that the government is making sure that no single terrorist slips through the security cracks? Next thing, we'll just prohibit passenger airplanes altogether. Fewer hijackings guaranteed.
Or maybe we need smarter people using smarter technology heading up these anti terrorism programmes.
