Googling Privacy

I have to look at this report more at length. I use Google for a lot of things (not so much it’s search engine, but it’s docs, reader, Gmail, Calendar), so it’s important. Lots of other companies mentioned as well. (via)

    So what to do about it?
    About a week or so ago, I noticed the web history tab on my igoogle. I was deeply disturbed by the amount of info there and began deleting the history. I realized a few clicks later that even if I delete all of this, Google is still going to have this info. So I subconsciously decided to ignore this. In the meantime, I have added even more google accounts to my reptoire.

    So, what to do?
