Google = Evil After All

According to a statement issued yesterday by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Google Desktop ain’t what it seems. A new feature of the application now records the contents of your hard drive, storing actual copies of your files — including Word documents, PDFs, and spreadsheets. Concern about the new “Search Across Computers” feature arises out of the possibility that making such files available to Google opens users up to severe invasion of privacy, not only from hackers, but from government surveillance as well.
