Critics have hit out at Google's decision to merge personal data from YouTube, Gmail, search, social network Google+ and dozens of other services.

Forthcoming changes to privacy settings will see data shared across all these platforms. Users cannot opt out of the changes.

Google said the update would offer more relevant searches.

I know, I don't know what I was thinking about. I read it today as something new. for some reason it appeared on the current Beeb technology page but it seems to have been moved again?

Sorry ... mods feel free to delete.

I say keep it. You can't possibly be the only person in the universe who read the article when it resurfaced-- and some of them will have missed it first time around (when it actually happened) and will now be screaming "wtf"?

Has there been any change whatsoever in g's share of the search market since January?

I've noticed these occasional glitches at the BBC, it threw-up a 2-3 year old Wikileaks one the other day and had my totally confused until I noticed the date.

I noticed that one , and others too, it appears that in quiet periods , it seems that it only takes one or two people on their site to be reading a particular story for it to reappear
in the "most popular" category nav' area or on their category pages..if you don't have a good memory..it can lead to confusion rather than dismissal as "the Beeb have gremlins again "..
