this time I think creepy Google might have tested the waters too far
People start to wake up and realize that the COMBINED USE of products and services from Google are becoming a real privacy threat.
E.g., Nexus One is tied to your phone number which is tied to your Google Account. I understand that Nexus One offers GPS and free navigation. Will the GPS information or your phone number be revealed to others with the next "not so smart" launch of a new social networking product?
Google Chrome O/S will be linked to your Google Account. What will Google reveal to others from your personal computing activity with the next "not so smart" product launch?
The failed product launch of Buzz has made terribly clear that too much information in one hand is not a good thing. That was one of the reasons the Internet has been built in a de-centralized fashion. Google's efforts to centralize the Internet is more and more revealed as a risk for the society.
Once this notion has settled in people's heads, see Google tumble.
