Google Desktop uses the same cookie as Google.com and other Google services. If you enable Advanced Features, the Google cookie will be included in the information sent to Google. We may be able to make Google services work better by associating this information with information from other Google services you use and vice versa.
Now why the hell do they want to relate my offline information with online activity and vice versa. Isn't this similar to what DoubleClick unsuccessfully tried to do a few years ago?
