Google 2

bs0d3 (2439278) writes "Google said Tuesday it will require users to allow the company to follow their activities across e-mail, search, YouTube and other services. The information will enable Google to develop a fuller picture of how people use its growing empire of Web sites. Consumers will have no choice but to accept the changes. The policy will take effect March 1 and will also impact Android mobile phone users, who are required to log in to Google accounts when they activate their phones. People who wish to search anonymously can use startingpage.com"

Read the article elsewhere.

I've stuck up for Google in the recent past, refuting the obvious.

Now finding that yes indeed Google has gone to the dark side.

That said - who logs into sites... (1)

I find firefox will sign me into a site, Opera offers me a choice, I chose Opera.

I have a stupid 5 second video on youtube that's seeing a "lot" of traffic; It's absurd the views it's getting.

What surprises me is almost everybody is logged into youtube when they visit.
I get to see all this great revenue potential in the info they leave behind (something I have no use for).

Myself, I only log into any site when I have something to do (as I just did with /.). Viewing videos doesn't require me logging it to youtube.
