You'll love Google then. My husband got my a new laptop a couple of weeks ago and helped me install various stuff on it, including importing my Chrome bookmarks. Sounds ordinary enough, right?
Then I go and start using my new laptop and browse on Chrome - first thing, I look at the bookmarks.
And guess what? They were exactly the bookmarks I had from 2.5 years ago, on another computer entirely, at work. You see, back when I worked for that firm, they used Chrome and Google Docs and Calendar for everything. But that was a work computer, and I've never transported any data from my work computer to anywhere else.
And now, 2.5 years later, in an entirely different country, with different internet connection, different provider, different physical laptop, I find all my bookmarks - over 20 of them, in the exact order I had it at work.
That was really freaky for me. For the first time, I saw just how much information Google keeps on you, and for a long time too. And it's not even illegal, considering when we started using google and gmail etc we've agreed to letting them store our data.
I'd actually be more afraid of Google than surveillance cameras and governmental data centres. I mean, most officials surely have better things to do than sieve through useless emails and texts talking about how great the weather was and that my cat sneezed this morning.
