Exerpts of one /.ers views, paranoid??

"Does anyone remember the targetted advertising of Gmail and how it sorta browses your email to place "relevent" ads on your screen?

Am I the only one that didn't overlook that just maybe Google wants to get in on the ground floor of your computer so it can sell you **** you're only vaguely interested in?

I personally can't imagine me giving Google permission to browse my computer, email, and chats at will. That's some scary stuff. I can see Homeland Security rubbing their hands together and writing the "we want that info" letters now--"

And more from El Reg (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/10/15/google_desktop_privacy/)
