Google Gmail Rolling Out Call Capability In 38 Languages [googleblog.blogspot.com]
Last year, we made it possible for those of you in the U.S. to call any mobile phone or landline directly from Gmail and starting today, we are making this available to many more of you who use Gmail outside the U.S. by offering calling in 38 new languages.
Weíre rolling out this feature over the next few days, so if itís available in your country youíll see a little green phone icon show up at the top of your chat list and youíll be ready to make calls (youíll need to install the voice and video plug-in if you havenít already).

How much data does Google get from a GMail account?

Contacts, both inbound and outbound
Subject matter interests via inbound and outbound emails
All the above from other email providers, if I import them.

Now, they want to know who I am talking to: When, where and how often?

What have I missed?

What a nice db of "connections" data about me. Really trying to connect the dots. From just email.

Now, looks like G is going international with this type of data collection.
Give away the call, and collect the data.

I just use it selectively. As I'm concerned about privacy online I always consider the implications before using the technology.
