They then see your computer on their 3rd party websites, track you and keep notes on what`s in your computer. Giants like Ebay will collaberate sooner or later. They then know how to target you for other things. Not a lie. I know the privacy policy only seems to hint at things that don`t sound so bad, but what will our future be like? What will happen to our private lives? I don`t want to be an alarmist and suggest people fear Google. But I am saying, just think about the implications.

My suggestion. Use google on the web, don`t be suckered into Google desktop. Or any other toolbar. Yahoo is doing it too. And people agree all because there is a tiny box with lots of boring text, "I Agree" that no one reads.. Don`t! Warn friends, don`t stand for it! I will use google on the web and nothing more. No tool bars for me. Just my opinion, but I believe it.

nightgoddess knows her stuff... Why is Google there for our free use? Some nice people just put it there? Nope, it records every thing you search for. I love it and use it to death... But it recognizes most computers by their IP address. Not so bad I guess because you use it on the WEB. You go to it.

YET, when you install any Google toolbar, or desktop app it`s IN your computer. It now comes to you. And the fact that it`s designed to "search" your computer fast makes everyone think, "Wow I will be able to search my computer so fast!"...

It`s actually an ingenious move on googles part because while everyone makes the move to get google desktop/toolbar, google is busy indexing the insides of everyones computers!

Here`s when it gets bad. They now offer larger mailboxes and more if you pay. You can use paypal or Visa, but Google WILL know your real name, address and credit card info for anything you pay for. See lower note.

Unfortunately I don`t use hardly any of the programs that it searches in, but it was pretty good at finding some old Outlook Express messages from when I used that for a short while.

Seems like a good application.

Yes I have tried it, it`s great. So much faster than the Outlook search for finding emails. Also very fast for finding files.
