> Now – don’t get me wrong – I would MUCH rather let Microsoft be the custodians of my personal data that Google. They seem to have a bit more of an idea about the dangers of having it and a bit less of an idea about how to use it against me.

Why do you feel Google will be less responsible than Microsoft? Personally I feel Google less threatening than MS, but that’s me.

Thanks for commenting. I guess it depends on where you sit.

I see Google as the clever – but flippant (even arrogant) teenager whilst I see Microsoft as the battle hardened veteran. Google has taken 85% share of the search market and shows no signs of stopping. In their haste they have sacrificed debate on the ethics of their technology. I believe everyone in Google believes THEY are doing their best for the “mother ship” at the Googleplex, but they are an unregulated information monster, whilst Microsoft has regulation coming out of its veins.
