Well, I had only just heard about it on SourceFed, so not my fault if I am a bit behind.

See, this is why I've been using DuckDuckGo for some time now. Well that and DDG doesn't 'bubble' your search results. Which would have very destructive effects if you were looking to actually learn something new about an issue.

I think I'm gonna start waning off from Google. I don't trust it anymore. Hopefully they lose enough business through this that they revert it by necessity. :/

I don't understand. Aren't they just combining histories across their various products? It's not like they've taken to publishing them for all to see.

So if I search for porn, I'll end up getting blow-up dolls and free sex advertised to me.

Sweet.

I don't know the specifics cause I've not read up but I think they are pulling a Facebook. The info will be generally and supposed to be confidential... Until it gives them a financial benefit to tell someone. Kinda scary.

Simple solution: Turn off your search history? I never had it on in the first place anyway.
