    And I'm glad for that, I really am. However, turning data over to the Feds is only one part of the privacy issue. Something more still needs to be done about collecting and keeping data in general, and even more needs to be done about handing it over to third party advertisers and other groups. Lucky for us, users have some control over that. But, it could be better.

    Again though, I'm glad to hear this. Google surprises me, but hey, I like being surprised. Maybe these corporations can see that handing things over to the government simply because it's the government, hurts them too.
