Google Google has updated its privacy policy - in fact, it has consolidated a mess of over 70 different privacy policies each covering an individual service into one, simpler policy. You'll now be treated as a single account, and data will be shared between Google services to make search results and ads more personalised (I assumed they already did that - makes sense).

o you really think this OK?


I don't like it, so I turned it off. Also, social networking is really fcuking boring. I just don't care.

However, you know just as well as I do - but you probably won't admit it - that Twitter, Facebook, and the Grubersieglerâ„¢ blog-o-tron would have stirred up just as big a shitstorm had Google included FB/Twitter data without authorisation.

Just as every Apple fart is being blown way out of proportion, so is every Google fart. I can assure you no regular person gives two shits about this.
