Goo-Big Brother-gle is watching you...

Google appears to be logging what you search for when you are logged in your machine, and most likely you are unaware of this seeing it's using a beta functionality (Google Search History)

Here is a post of how to turn it off... if you are all worried about this data that our Google overlords are capturing about us...

I used to notice that my sites were starting to appear on the front page - and figured it must be because my sites are soooo good. Alas it was just the personal search learning that I liked to go to those sites.

It was interesting to see my search history and to realise how much I (over) used google. But I turned it off of course.

Not that Google can't work out your tastes from your goole/gmail cookie anyway - just that they won't show it to u.
