My System Specs


My problem isn't that Google wants to use my private information, it's that Google wants to use my personal information over all of their products whether I want to use that product or not. I was willing to allow them to data mine my email for targetted ads, but I'm not willing to allow my personal and/or contact information to be used in other applications I may or may not be using......

Worst case scenario is that Google starts using some of the information from my email contacts in their own version of facebook without my knowledge... image not even having a facebook account, but yet everybody on your contact list who does have an account is getting updates based on your gmail information... I know it sounds far fetched, but unless they're willing to state catagorically that I can turn off any info sharing with my contacts (or anybody else for that matter) I'm not interested. (already switched my default search to Bing, and my homepage to gmail (as opposed to google) until such time as I transfer over my email account.
