Did any of you actually read the article? It's integrating the two searches after login. It doesn't mean Joe Sixpack surfing for porn at his local library can see any porn related emails of yours. You people are truly pathetically paranoidically retarded.

What's with the paranoia over this stuff. While I wouldn't find this useful... they're relaying information that's private to you, to.... you! And only you.

You're missing the point -- people correlate Google Search with searching the web. When their e-mail starts popping up in those results, it's terrifying for those who aren't technically savvy enough to understand what's going on.

It's just a poor UI decision on Google's part, that's all.

"Oh noes! I've been able to search my gmail account for 7 years now! And now those results also appear on my web search results page if I'm logged in! Google is stealing my emails!"

Yawn.

I_C_Weener: Yeah. This is creepy


I don't see how it's "creepy"... It's just a window away from opening Gmail and searching there. Sure, being able to turn it off is nice, but really, don't just stay logged into Google 24/7, and you'll be fine. As long as you keep your account info safe and don't wander off at work while logged in, there's nothing "creepy" about it, they are just joining 2 different sets of search results and putting it into one place.

Y'know, I needed an excuse to try using Outlook.com as my primary for a while.

Right on cue. Thanks, Google!

It's not that it's creepy, it's that it needs a clear and easy way to turn it off.

I pay greplin $5 per month to search through many of my cloud accounts simultaneously (which of course means greplin owns me).

It sounds similar to what happens on Android search.
