    It's actually a pretty brilliant business model. The more ads they sell, the more free apps they're able to give you. The more free apps they give you, the more goodwill they generate, the more you use their products and believe that they're not evil and are willing to tell them about yourself. The more they learn about you, the more lucrative their ads become and the more money they make.

    ------
    Ask your friends what business Google is in and the answer you'll most likely get is "search." And they would be wrong. Google is, first and foremost, an advertising company. A full 97 percent of its revenue comes from advertising on its various properties, including YouTube, plus partner sites through its AdSense product. Sure, Google has Android and Chrome OS and everything else, but it they're just there to get people to watch more ads.

    This really useful for me! ;)

    But why must everything be, default position, set up to track us without our notice or permission, and we have to tediously opt out of all cookies from within Google, and on every browser we use, across every PC we have? Google is a big giant government op masquarading as a free enterprise. It's trying to get us used to expecting no privacy, using a medium that can be just as easily be default setted to preserve privacy. Do we really want to be acclimated to companies fishbowling us or branding us like cattle?

    Best answer to Big G---use startpage or scroogle, where IPs are not logged and cookies are not stored.
