OK Google, tell me how do you know everything?

We know, you’re tired of us talking about it: as soon as we talk about digital and in particular Google, the same questions, the same debates: the abuses of the Internet, the power of GAFAM, money, our freedoms, the law.
But still: why are we stuck with Google? Why him ? Why has he become necessary, irreplaceable, a member of our family, a friend, even a double?
An appeal, in any case, unavoidable… Because yes, thanks to Google, we can know everything… with one exception: how does he know everything?
