All of the gmail users might want to check this out, or maybe not.http://www.windsofchange.net/archives/009782.php

Oh @#$%!
You are right - maybe I'd rather not know. I love the technology, but
at what cost???
one more thing to worry about...

The risk to your inner secrets here is the use of "free" services.  Everything has a price, there is 
nothing that is free.  Having your own e-mail program on your own machine with the mail delivered 
through your ISP keeps the contents much more private.  Nothing is 100% though.  Even AOL was, and 
maybe still is saving search data.  Dogpile claims that they do not save search data by the way.  There 
are companies that cater to the people who do not want their life to be a open book for anybody to 
read.  And there will be more.

"...to cluster ad placements to targeted groups of readers."
It brings another 'cluster' to mind. All the Work From Home- in your
sleep- scams using autoresponders are thus empowered. Nothin's free,
except fresh bread samples at Great Harvest and coffee samples at
NOVO.
I think it was in my ZD alerts that Gmail encourages you not to delete
any mail because of their very large free inbox capacity. After six
months in the U S, email messages are no longer protected
communications under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.
I'm going to start my own computer company- the Orwell Server company-
to go with my FAA chewing gum company.

FAA gum- cheaper by the case at Costco. Satisfaction guaranteed...

See, even the nice boys at google are not giving you all of that storage space for free.  They ae building 
a monster computer centre here in Council Bluffs.  When it is done maybe I can apply a liberal 
quantity of tongue oil to a overly talkative employee and find out what is going on.....If I really care.

Judging from the mail I get in gmail, they have me pegged. I invest in 
penny stocks, need cheap Viagara, send money to Nigeria.

But they are trying to improve the targeting.  Think of the more enticing and interesting adds resulting 
from the random queries you ran 2 years ago.

I'm actually not all that worried about Google. Yes, it collects information on where you surf. However, there are ways to surf the net anonomously for people who don't like having anyone collect data on them. But I only use Google for finding things that I don't care if anyone knows about.
Much more worrisome are those companies like AT&T, Cox Communications, Warner Cable, and others that offer a full variety of services: telephone calling, e-mail, Internet access. They collect all that information and have the technology to correlate it. There was an analysis of Warner Cable's home contract done by the Los Angeles Times a week or two ago, and Warner states that they will track and collect all this information from the services you buy, keep it as long as they want, and share it with anybody they want. It worries me that one company, without having to report this to anyone, can collect all that information about me. Thank you, I'll buy my services from completely independent companies.

Hey Ray, Google checking on all my surfing????
Makes me think of what a GI said when he found out about the Germans
surrounding Bastone..."The German's have surrounded us...The poor
bastards..."
My web surfing makes about as much sense as a blind man leading a search
party in a blackberry patch, "Ouch, not that way...Wait..don't touch
that...Turn around...Ouch Wait..."

saving search data is fine, but im pretty sure google has a non distribute
clause for email addresses.  besides, why would they supply email addresses
to marketing companies, using refined data or not, just to have to block the
email these companies will send to google email addresses?   ;)

if anyone really cares about their "stuff" getting out, get off the internet.
what are they going to find, I have 20 email addresses, search for god knows what, have no bank accounts or credit cards so they will put me in the "who cares file."
it is a crap shoot for anyone to profile anyone but the stepford wives...
I would say more but it may get out!!

Terry, you have me pegged- that's about my surfing history. I would
drive the cyber detectives to drinking Carling Black Label beer. By
midday, I'd have digressed from my search and not return for days or
weeks. Po Bastards...
