Google Copies Your Hard Drive - Government Smiles in Anticipation
Google today announced a new "feature" of its Google Desktop software that greatly increases the risk to consumer privacy. If a consumer chooses to use it, the new "Search Across Computers" feature will store copies of the user's Word documents, PDFs, spreadsheets and other text-based documents on Google's own servers, to enable searching from any one of the user's computers. EFF urges consumers not to use this feature.

Thanks for that Sethhaniel. I don't currently use Google Desktop, but when I do that'll come in handy.

Doubt there's very much I'd consider 'private' on my PC, but I wouldn't like anyone nosing around in my private accounts/correspondence/emails (if it were possible) without my permission. G
