It's not about doing something nefarious, its about giving the information away for free for nothing. There was a study that shows, if I recall correctly, by using Google your giving away $1000 dollars of personal information a year. I would rather get paid at least $1000 for it. This is all I am saying is that Google doesn't deserve it.
Also, it's really not that hard to change your IP, at least on my cable modem. Eventhough the goal is a more static approach by the ISP so the lease rarely expires . Simple change the MAC of the router and reset the cable modem. I do it once every two or so months. Also theirs plenty of free user friendly proxies like hotspot shield. And its not about being worried about the ISP. It's about the third parties and what they obtain indefinitely and who they sell it to. Something that we have no control of or say in. Which is kind of disturbing in my mind and nefarious.
Also I wanted to add, even if you don't want to use Google, you have to, because their tracking methods all over the internet. It's not optional. You must access Google to use the internet in some way. Not fair.
