Google and Privacy
There are certain things about google that I truly like. I find their search engine superior to all others I have tried and the google reader automatically sends me news and blogs of interest to one place where I can scan the headlines and the first 3 lines to decide whether to read the full story.
Privacy, unauthorized control of my computer, tracking and theft of bandwidth are issues with google for me. Where I am the internet is very expensive and near as I can figure google uses a ton of background internet and I have not been able to disable it. I installed some google stuff on my computer that I want permanently removed and my attempts to remove it have been unsuccessful.
I came across an article that is pointing out a number of issues with google and I tend to agree that some legislation is in order to control some of their activities.
