Stop making my brain hurt!
It will have to come out.
3 short, 2 long, 3 short. (The old default SMS beep on mobile phones). Realized my gaffe about 10 seconds after I couldn't undo it.

Google+ Photos has facial recognition (Find My Face). So if google runs their facial recognition software on all photos where the user has set up their phone to automatically upload photos to Google+ and also agreed to the Find My Face feature (or some similar agreement that people generally just click through), that would give them a pretty good approximation of these numbers.
Records Netflix and Hulu, adding information stating that your account was used to do the recording (so that if something shows up on P2P, you'll get implicated fairly quickly). For movies/shows my kids watch repeatedly, I've found it nicer to just save a copy on my NAS and then stream it to the TV via Plex. The kids know exactly how to do this and typically check Plex before going to Netflix.
Like a "map" a "search engine" should not be biased
I would argue that the whole point of a search engine is to be biased. Google chooses to make their bias "what we think you really wanted plus some ads to earn us money". Baidu makes their bias "The results the Chinese government would prefer that you see".
Of course, these are my approximations of what their biases are and do not necessarily reflect their actual biases.
and is surprised when that results in an border interrogation?
Nowhere in TFA did it state that she was surprised. I fully expect that at least half the point of mentioning it was to see how she'd be treated.
