Giving Google Your Life
It is amazing how we treat Google with the innocence of a child, increasingly giving them trust and power over our information that we would never consider giving another company, or even a government or agency.

As if Google doesn’t already control enough of the web, and enough of our personal information, they are about to roll out a service that encourages you to share with them every piece of information about yourself:

“Google is preparing a service that would let users store on its computers essentially all of the files they might keep on their personal-computer hard drives — such as word-processing documents, digital music, video clips and images, say people familiar with the matter. The service could let users access their files via the Internet from different computers and mobile devices when they sign on with a password, and share them online with friends.”
