The Google TOS that were were all forced to agree to last year says that they can do whatever they want with any information gathered from any of their services. I think they put that in there to avoid law suits over these issues.
I tend to agree with the conspiracy theory that say Google is directly tied to the NSA and are providing a data feed for their new data center in Utah.
When you dig into it, there are no free services from Google. There is always a price to pay. That price is the information they collect. Maybe we should all start to wonder what they collect from Android phones without our knowledge.
Do I trust Google? Only as much as I trust Comrade Obama and Comrade Holder.
"Don't Be Evil" Bwahahahahahha!
