if goog is your DNS it doesn't matter if you using their SE or not.
ya know....cause they just wanna make the web better. *gag*
This would reduce load on web servers, and show fewer hits in the web logs: "Google Public DNS uses large, Google-scale caches, and load-balances user traffic to ensure shared caching, letting us answer a large fraction of queries from cache."
70 billion requests and yet not a stitch of Google owned content. You have to feel bad for the people who's shoulders are stepped on here before you can oooo and ahhh at how wonderful Google is.
On the privacy page, they list "What we log", along with this statement...
|We don't correlate or combine your information from the temporary or permanent logs with any other data that Google might have about your use of other services, such as data from Web Search and data from advertising on the Google content network. |
I fully understand that they could use a DNS service to extract all sorts of information if they did correlate with search data. Without that correlation, what information could they be extracting? And they don't in fact seem to be saving any information that could be used to link logged information to search information at some future date.
I'm not trying to say that there shouldn't be a concern, btw... just trying to understand what it is.
The only problem with G is that what G says and what G does are two different things
I wonder how much of the "success" and adoption of the DNS is because the IP addresses are so easy to remember?

Probably quite a bit. Just like level 3's (188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206) are also widely used.
@Robert, they first lock in customers and then change privacy terms!
