Google being a bit too blatantly forceful?

Google needs our usage data to push forward with the creepy, invasive personalisation and social products they are so excited about. So Urchin is no longer available as the of end of this month (according to my hosting provider). No warning.

It's a paid for service, unlike G's WMT and GA so it can't be about the cost of it.

So, what alternatives are there to Google Analytics now? Or is the net (pardon the pun) tightening?

I use Piwik just for the sake of not giving Google as much info as when using their services.

I don't quite understand the original post regarding Urchin. I was getting ready to switch to it. It seemed pretty good in the past.

The horse's mouth [google.com] says:

Urchin WebAnalytics Software is discontinued. Sales will end on March 28th, 2012
