The head of a media group that has been critical of Google over the Google Street View image controversy is urging people to be careful about using the company’s services, saying the media “were wrong” to criticize the company for its handling of the situation.
“We are disappointed by the way the media has been portraying Google and the situation,” Media Group chief executive Jim Meyer said on a conference call with investors on Wednesday.
“Google has responded to the problem with an open mind and a willingness to listen to the concerns of the public.
They are now taking steps to address the issues.” “
In the end, Google has taken a position of openness and has listened to public concerns.
They are now taking steps to address the issues.”
Meyer told investors on the call that he expects the media to respond positively to Google’s decision to stop releasing images.
“I think it’s fair to say we’re a bit disappointed by some of the reactions to the situation, and it’s important for the media and the public to know that we are in a position to respond with a constructive approach and to support Google,” Meyer said.
Google, which has faced criticism for its approach to the image controversy, announced a week ago that it would no longer use Street View imagery in Google+ photos for a time.
The move has angered many Google+ users who say the company is using the Street View images to promote its own products, including Google Glass.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has defended his company’s actions and said Google will continue to use Street Views for its own benefit.
“The imagery we’ve put out in Google+, we use them for a purpose,” Pichie said at a Google I/O conference on Wednesday, in a call with reporters that was recorded and released by The Wall Street Journal.
“If we’re selling Glass, then we’re putting images out there that we’ve created that are helpful to the public and useful for us.”
Google has defended the move as a way to help make Glass more attractive to consumers, saying its goal was to make Google Glass a viable product.
Google Glass is a virtual-reality headset, a wearable computer and a wireless, wireless connection for people who have difficulty using computers, such as blind people.
The company also has announced plans to release a new version of Glass that will be thinner, lighter and easier to wear.
