    I don't understand why they want to do this when they know they are going to have thousands of law suites

    My Google history.

    1. Porn
    2. Porn
    3. Porn
    4. Jeep parts
    5. RC car parts

    So if they tell you how to turn it off, why even bother having the shit that "watches" you. I would think 99% of people are just going to turn it off.

    cause most people just hit dismiss. they alert you every time you hit a google page while you're logged in. if you hit dismiss that's not their fault.

    Um, no. I read that. But if the entire policy is changing anyway this feature could disappear after it's in place. If their new policy is to track and collect everything you do it's a very valid question. And its probably why the article says "How to delete your Google Browsing History before new policy." Try reading that.

    Or this.
    Key words being "history" and "collected." Notice theyre in past tense.

    To the best of my knowledge, this just stops past data. after go-live of their new big brother system, its all fair game.

    If you're going to do some wack searching, pop open ie (or some other browser that you never use) and make sure you aren't logged in.

    Why do you guys stayed logged into Google while searching? The only time I login into it is if I need to check my gmail. I rarely ever even do that, my gmail comes directly to my phone...

    Even if I'm not logged in, I'm sure THEY are still tracking me. Unfortunately it's a part of our lives because it makes the sheep feel more secure. Until the sheep stop asking for them to take our liberties so as to make us "safer," It won't get any better.
