Weak Signal's description 
"European consumers appear to be less worried than some regulators about the potential loss of privacy" "The data protection agencies tend to be extreme," said Peter Heinzmann, chief executive of a Swiss company that makes software for Web cameras called CN Lab. "But most people are voluntarily giving information to Google because they think the benefits outweigh the risk". Weak signal for open information society ("world with no secrets").
