Beware, Google Is Watching

I have been wary of Google for a long time now. Long before I read that Google saves all our search histories and serves us the pages it thinks we'll want, before even I read that they are documenting every book every written and putting them online in a massive text searchable database.

However I read this today, and I have to say, they have me spooked.

I'm thinking of all the weird and wonderful things I've searched for recently, "albi socks", "busorama" and "bassett hound smell bark" are just a few. And I'm thinking, what sort of person does Google think I am?

What do you think blog readers, are we right to be paranoid?
