Another discussion of the problems with Google's new policy, from a somewhat different perspective:
http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2012/02/google_privacy_policy_the_missing_opt_out_isn_t_the_only_problem_.html

More google privacy issues: http://www.mercurynews.com/business/ci_19990444
"Google deliberately worked around something in Safari to make ads work in the way it wanted them to work, regardless of whether the user wanted that or not."

And finally, I checked
