I read about an example of this back in the day. I can’t recall any of the fine details so go ahead and don’t believe me, but I recall some engineer used the Google suite while developing some novel way to do something with cars and then Google shortly thereafter announced the same feature coming to android auto, then some novel idea he had about an engine or something suddenly ended up on the Chinese market. Could just be coincidence since that sort of thing happens all the time, but after I graduated high school I’ve consciously avoided the G Suite for anything other than polls for my movie watching club

E; the 2nd story is more of a cautionary tale against cloud services in general. Again who knows if either is true

You actually believe this? That someone actually goes through your google docs, reads them and steals ideas that they sell to China? When people say Google uses your data, that's not what they mean.
