It's Official: Google Is Evil Now

swintons:hostilities | bellafaim:

In a radical privacy policy shift, Google announced today that it will begin tracking users across all services—email, Search, YouTube and more—sharing information with no option to opt out. The change was announced in a blog post today, and will go into effect March 1.

For what little it’s worth (and not entirely related to this particular privacy issue), you can install a target-ad opt-out extension for your browser here.  We shouldn’t have to opt out of information tracking in the first place, but this is a start.  Perhaps we should all start surfing in Anonymous mode?
