    "Google plans on tracking you across almost every one of its products you use
    including Calendar, Docs, Gmail, search, and YouTube to give you better search
    results, more precisely targeted ads, and helpful schedule reminders. The new
    "features" are set to kick in March 1 when Google is condensing more than 70
    disparate privacy policies for all its different products into one mega-policy."

  2. the media is hyping it up. Google has always tracked everything. Google serves me well, they are not a unit of government, and we are free to use them or not use them at our will.

    I have a much bigger problem with TSA as a unit of government compelling American citizens to produce travel documents and be subjected to warrantless search as a condition of travel within our borders.

    I also take issue with fusion centers that operate only as a disguise for government to mine all the data they can on honest American citizens.

    Don't like Google's policy? Go use Yahoo!
  3. I think Ebay and FaceBook are also involved. I did a Google search for "turntables" and during my visit to FaceBook and Ebay turntable ads were displayed for a few days.

    I have no problem with that though.
  4. If you aren't paying for the product, you are the product.
  5. Google is very vast. It has many things to explore. If paying in it, it is good.

    I went here and it says that I have not turned on history, so I don't know if they are actually tracking me. If you turned it on, I think this is where you can erase it.
