+ - Group says Google the worsr on privacy

Submitted by pcause
pcause (209643) writes "According to this article in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required), a study by Privacy International. While Microsoft, AOL and Yahoo were included, none came close to Google, which was said to be "achieving status as an endemic threat to privacy".

Since Google business and revenue and enhanced by systematically violated your privacy, getting you to install spyware on your Desktop (yes, that is what the toolbar and Google Desktop), and tracking your every web action (why they want you to stay logged in), I guess they don't consider this behavior "evil". As a Privacy International person is quoted as saying, "Under the microscope, it turns out that Google is doing much more with our data than we ever imagined".

Shouldn't we all be concerned about the volume of information about us that Google collects and how they use and abuse it?"
