If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


Google Dashboard

So now we have the Google dashboard www.google.com/dashboard -- everything Google knows about you in the one place. Well that would be jolly nice, but it's really everything Google knows about your Google account, which is a slightly different thing.

Because it misses all those unauthenticated search strings which are Google's actual meat and drink. And there are already complaints about this.

But I won't be complaining. Because unless you co-operate with Google cookies, what that would show is everything sought from your IP address, which if it's like any of mine is NATed. Do you want to see what everyone in the firm has sought? Do you want them to see your searches? I think not!
