    You're referring to your photo? Starting to look like Facebook. Will Google continue to mine our personal info too, as they have in the recent Street View scandal?

    No RochelleP I'm not, it is a picture taken from my own collection on which I pasted my photo on, then set as my google home page.

    My warning about Google still stands. Beware of their mining your comp for info, a la Facebook. I don't recommend a Google home page as you have to keep their cookies. This is all window dressing, doesn't make the search engine any more efficient. When you get a chance check out your privacy setting at their site. After what happened with Street View last month, I wouldn't trust them to even put a cookie on my computer. I've swiched to the anonymous proxy Scroogle.
