It's hard not to think that a company with so broad a coverage of the internet to track you with isn't up to something sneaky. Especially when their bread and butter come from one tiny corner of that coverage. But the fact is, the internet allows people to communicate so well that the more areas people communicate via google's software/hardware the more chances they have to make money.

They don't care what you've been up to or where you are going next, as long as you've been there and continue to go there via their software/hardware. They have no intention of stopping you from doing anything or sabotaging your efforts or turning you in to the thought police.
