With the backing of the likes of Larry Page and Eric Schmidt of Google, this seems like a good time to get out of the Google system entirely, you know? We already gave them ownership of all our data, and the relationship between your Gmail and now the annexation of space for mining is seriously some Total Recall prologue. In fact basically all of the movies have warned us about what happens next. We are totally going to end up in an Ellen Ripley situation if we all work for The Company. (Except they gave the Weyland-Yutani company an even more menacing name here in real life: Planetary Resources? Jesus.)
