What privacy do you insinuate that we are giving up exactly? Because all I see being collected are minuscule things like what kind of products I frequently search for and my geographical location, and both are for a pretty good cause: efficiently deliver ads to me that I might ACTUALLY have even some MILD interest in. I think my neighbor
whose name I don't even know is more into my privacy than that.
Still don't really see the big deal over this. Their data collection is not changing in any way, they are only now combining your data between multiple services like GMail, YouTube, and Google search. Wait, that means I won't see obnoxious Youtube ads about cleaning products and will get some ads for new games, movies, car products, and specials for some of the other gear I actually have interest in?
