Google So, the EFF has an article up on how to clear your search history at Google before the changes to the company's privacy policy takes effect. Most importantly, the hitherto sealed search hisory will now be shared with other Google services to provide better products advertising. Interestingly enough, when I got to the search history page, I saw this. Was this feature opt-in or something? Also, just to be safe, where do I go to delete or even just see the information associated with my Apple ID or my Live ID?

Am I the only idiot who likes this feature? The web history, I mean? Because I want google to act smarter for me - THIS is what I use it for. Because it knows the context of what I search when I do it. Makes my life easier, for sure.
So why should I complain? Ok, it's nice to remove the search history, I like this too, I have the option. But it seems like there's this silly crusade against Google, when Google feels like the last man standing, fighting against the demise of the web as free as we know it.
But heck, I might be the village idiot and not know it.
