Google is freakin creepy. And getting creepier every year. Just wait till they figure a way to tap into brain waves.

This is a true story...I set up a gmail account for Mom when she was still alive. She was clueless with computers, but wanted an email account. I intentionally did not use any of my information to set it up (email or otherwise).
Several years later I bought a new laptop from the computer store. When I got it all set up, I went to google looking for something. I looked up in the upper righthand corner...and I was logged into Google as Mom!!!
It was a brand new computer, without one trace of my travels on it! I had not set up any email, not logged into anything at all. It was my first search on a brand new computer!
I slammed the laptop closed so hard I almost broke it in disbelief!
There's NO FREAKING WAY google could have known that...without some serious (and I mean SERIOUS) illegal eavesdropping and data mining from numerous sources!
Or, first search, google copped your IP addy, and knew it was you, from last activity on that IP addy.
The one with my mom on the other hand, is a real head-scratcher. There's no way they could have done that without some really clandestine methods.
