    why I won't search with google anymore...
    Q: What information do you record about searches? Do you store IP addresses linked to search terms and types of searches (image vs. Web)?
    (Editor's note: Google pointed to its list of Frequently Asked Questions on Google.com, which says in detail what is collected and stored.)

    Given a list of search terms, can you produce a list of people who searched for that term, identified by IP address and/or cookie value?
    Langdon: Yes. We can associate search terms with IP addresses and cookies, but not with users' names unless they are registered with Google.

    Nice. We all know Microsoft would never mine data on users.

    And thanks to the new loggin required by G i have a cookie that I have seen deposited before visiting any pages...if your running adwords and went through the same proceedure try this:

    Clear everything and close your browser. Open to a non-g homepage and ckeck your cookies...do you have something from the big-g?

    tie it all back to your plastic that you pay for the ads with and yes they know exactly who you are.

    Say Cheese ;-)

    G sees all and knows all, and I'm sure the others do it also.

    Solution: build your own search engine.

    Solution: Stay off the web

    Best Solution: Lock yourself in your mom's basement.

    What's special about associating searches with IP addresses? I can do that too. Every page that's brought up by a search, shows up in the log file along with the search term and the IP of the computer that called it up.

    As for the cookies, I would think any merchant site (or other cookie-using site) could also see the same stuff Google can...

    May as well just unplug it.

    Your ISP has a record of every page you've ever visited and every search you've ever made.

    So, even if you switch the search engine, your isp will still have all your data
