Lenovo is the third OEM to jump into ChromeOS. Chromebooks have been doing well on Amazon, apparently, too. Android tablets, iPads, the Mac, and now Chromebooks - it must be rainy in Redmond.

It's not spying when you have agreed to allow them to do it.

But what have people actually agreed to? For example, all the information collected by AOL search allowed researchers to track down specific people. Can we actually say that people know what they're agreeing to in this age of one-sided* 100 page EULAs?
