What makes Google so great? What allows them to have the ability to
alter search results to tailor them just for you, or recommend searches?
Google know things about you to help you. A search engine that deleted
everything about you is never going to be as good for that reason.
Besides, if you want to you can tell Google to forget you, it isn't
Google always says it wants to better knowledge, and do you really think
they will do anything with our data? I am all for privacy with some
things, but them knowing I searched for 'ubuntu' on a search engine
makes no difference to me. In fact I fine it a nice touch they can
recommend me searching 'spicebird'.
