Uh-oh. Big boo boo for google. This happens just as google is branching out into other venues. Good job making people suspicious of anything google, you dopes.

Ever system that I work on that has a rogue spyware, maleware, or virus seems to have 3 or 4 tool bars installed. Maybe coincidence, but I urge users not to install them when given the choice regardless if it is from google, msn, yahoo, etc.

Hmm, I think I'll completely switch to a different search engine now. Google keeps hold of your search info the longest and apparently tracks your browsing sessions when they shouldn't.

"And in other news, Google and Microsoft merged today in an attempt to take over the world but sources refuted this claim stating that without an iPad, it could not be done"

So, do I care that google knows I search for rough butt sex, including Bill Gates, a donkey and Britney? I mean that can't be that uncommon!

It isn't, unless you want it during the "auntie visit days". I haven't found anyone sharing this interest yet. :(

Does Hitler care if you're Jewish? People can be hated for any reason, that's why privacy is important. You should be able to be you without having people judge you for it.

IE version 6.3.911.1819 through 6.4.1311.42?

Wow, I’d leave the ‘bug’ there.

If you’re running IE6 security is not your top concern anyways.
