    I think that most people are going to do nothing.
    Just wondering how you think it will affect staying anonymous?
    :cool:

    they can suggest things for you based on your surfing habits, say like extra large condoms if your looking at big dicks?

    Or as simple as BMW's for sale if your looking at cars.

    Gathering more information about you and you can not option out if your use thier google products.

    Huh, that sorta sucks. Wouldn't really want my friends seeing on my laptop that I've been searching for porn and stuff.

    Why, thanks. :D

    I don't think staying anonymous is possible in this day and age, unless one is completely off grid.

    You know they've been doing this since at least October of 2010, right?

    In fact, both Bing and Yahoo do this same thing. No change here.

    These groups adopt these invasive policies and demonstrate little regard for their customers' personal information and privacy because they CAN.

    And they CAN because their users willingly submit to it without batting an eyelid. "Duoh, sure. Why not?? I got nuthin to hide, duhhhh."

    ...assholes.
