Yeah but I would not take lightly some of those comments especially in the Gmail section, it's the basis for a discussion we had a while ago here about the nature of Google. Paranoia, conspiracy theories, scare mongering, yes it's easy to dismiss the site as all of those things, yet everyone with a gmail account should read that section and ponder on the possible ramifications of such information and the very real potential for frightening abuse, but then again the majority of people prefer to bury their heads in the sand and hope it will never happen to them, good luck to them!

I think I have a gmail account. I activated it and promptly forgot the password. Hmmm. Am I still one of their drones? Wink

Remember urchin? Isn't that now Google analyitics? Now they can know all. Shock

Edit: But Google analyitics is free . . . now because of the demand, there is a waiting list for Google to have access to all of one's company online data. Smile One could argue about the advantages or disadvantages either way on this one.
