Google Desktop Warning from CNET

* Users should consider changing their habits. Because Google creates a
record of everything that a person touches on the desktop, users will
need to be aware of that when they are conducting sensitive activities.
E-mails, Web sites visited, chat transcripts--all of these items become
discoverable objects within the index. Users uncomfortable with this
type of monitoring will have to limit the scope of desktop search--and
to that end, Google provides excellent controls to suspend indexing and
exclude specific types of activities, folders and Web sites.'s+new+search+terms/2030-1069_3-
