What good would that do? If someone/some thing really wants to learn
all the info there is about me, they'll find a way. Google might not
have your personal info, but some database somewhere in the system
surely has. In such a high tech world as it is today, I don't think
there is a truly secure way to escape from "being followed" or "being
bugged" - if indeed someone wanted to follow you or listen to your
phone conversations :)
