    Yikes, scary. I really like the last quote by Steele, it made me laugh.

    I don't think it is right for them to do this, but, what can ya do? All you can really do is stop using them.

    Well I use this http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/scraper.htm it gives you the google search engine results without tracking/recording your searches supposely. It gives you the top 100 google results of your entry.

    If anyone saw the aftermath of the AOL search records been released then you can see how dangerous this information is.

    Bleh, I really only use google for tutorials and stuff like that; school occasionaly as well. As long as you're not looking up XXX rated material, it shouldn't be a big deal. But hey, I'm not saying it's good..

    Oof?
    I really coudn't care.
    For one thing, like said, I'm not a terrorist.
    Two, I don't search for anything illegal, and google dont actually know you in person etc. So...why care.
