Re: "Google just rolled over"

Actually that's the least surprising part of this, given that Google has publicly stated on many occasions that its users have no reasonable expectation of privacy. Indeed Eric Schmidt has made it crystal clear that he has nothing but contempt for privacy, parroting that old chestnut about "nothing to hide", while breathlessly exalting that fact that privacy is essentially dead (although he tries to whitewash this by drawing a weak distinction between privacy and anonymity).
