With the commercial interests that Amazon has any offering that they produced would be no better than google (WRT privacy).
I don't think privacy is as big an issue today vs. 2004, what they were doing in 2004 probably looks like childs play in comparison to what google is doing now.
I haven't seen any amazon snoop mobiles driving around lately.
Google has simply failed in its core product. They have repudiated the reality of a dynamic web.
