But then again, I'd trust just about anyone else with my information about what I buy, when I bought it, and where I bought it before I trust Google with it.
Might be cause I'm pretty sure Google has ideas about what to do with the data - for their own ends - while I'm more sure the other companies are more intellectually challenged when it comes to that department.
Having it as a national thing, also makes the companies more liable to be busted if anything goes haywire. At least that's what I tell myself
