"Google will stop its long-standing practice of scanning the contents of individual Gmail users for advertising purposes, the company announced in a blog post today. The practice, something Google has done nearly since the launch of its email service, allows the company to digest the contents of email messages and use them to deliver targeted ads within Gmail itself." - MORE

One of the reasons I stay off Gmail, though I have an address there... The box is empty.
Google knows too much about everybody already.

I'm glad they are stopping it, although deep down I don't believe it

Google creeps me out, seriously. The thing is they all do it now...this constant harvesting and cross-referencing of data on everybody. Privacy is dead and buried.
