Comments: Google Gmail and privacy

I hadn't really thought of that, but you are right...Google will know an awful lot about you. On some level though, I feel more inclined to trust Google with that sort of stuff than MS (monopolist, shady business tactics, lousy product) or the USPS (still pseudo-governmental, iffy track record (at least around these parts)). I realize that Google is, first and foremost, a business and will do what they've got to for the bottom line, but for some reason, they come across as a bunch of good guys who came up with a really cool idea and made good on it. Whether that's just clever marketing or real deal is something I don't know.
