There is a fine line between building a property to provide a service and building a property to harvest real personal data. Google is now, as Eric admits, doing only the later. Creepy uncle as netmeg calls it is a perfect analogy, Mr Schmidt himself admitted to pushing the creepy line a few months ago. I know none of my family members will trust or use a Google product knowingly anymore and they've switched over to Bing search (and like it).
You have to admit, Google is being a bully here, if they can't have your personal information they have no interest in you anymore.
