I see Obama has been looking at Reddit

Silicon Valley giant Google has announced that it will shortly be unveiling an Open Source browser currently called 'Chrome'. One of the new key features is it's two privacy modes 'American' and 'Actual'.

Google spokesman Larry page said 'With this browser we can advance the way the world uses the internet and also keep the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) happy'

The 'Actual' privacy mode ensures anonymous browsing with absolutely nothing kept on your computer to show where you have been. The 'American' privacy mode sends everything on your computer to the DHS for 'evaluation'.

Currently the default setting is 'American' and as yet no-one has been able to switch it off.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
