A little article on the tradeoffs of Google's value versus other things, privacy being one of them. One interesting clip:
"The mere existence of that huge archive of personal e-mail -- an archive that can neither be backed up nor deleted on demand -- should give users pause. For example, such an archive could become a one-stop-shopping destination for subpoenas in civil litigation and criminal investigations."
At this moment I can't remember our class discussion on the topic, but I do remember one mention of younger generations trading off more privacy for features. Is this an inexperience thing (because we don't know how lack of privacy might bite us), or an experience thing (because we are more experienced with the technology we don't fear the privacy as much)? di that make sense?
One more article about Google and privacy, but this one isn't email, but rather what can be collected from Google searches and cookies...
But is there really an option? In order to use the services they offer, you need to give them the information they ask for. The only alternative to compliance is to not use the service.
