I'm beginning to think that Eric Schmidt is NOT putting his foot in his mouth over and over. His repeated and disturbing comments about privacy may be part of an intentionally constructed "social engineering" campaign.
I hadn't thought of that before, that's quite possible. If he says "crazy" stuff now, then by the time they implement things, it will be like "Oh, I heard that before, I'm surprised it took them so long to implement XYZ" ;-)
...I do use Bing much more, but I have no illusions about where they'd go with this stuff if and when they choose to...
The reason I think it's OK to search with Bing most of the time is that they don't have me connected to a variety of other things. Like AdWords, AdSense, Analytics, GMail, etc.
Although Bing might try to personalize my searches at some point, at least they don't have such a big profile of me and what I do online. Right now all they have is my search history. They don't have my bank account info, home address, cell phone number, etc. that Google has.
Perhaps the best solution for now is to use startpage.com - No tracking whatsoever and you can still have those goofle results that you like ;-)
