Ah the cold winds... That's what I'll blame the less than friendly attitude on

Hi, Kicheko.

That actually can't happen (or, at least, I wouldn't let it), because it's unethical for attorneys to split fees (including commissions) with non-attorneys.  ;)

I tend to think that us folks in the Northeast are (at least stereotypically) less prone to friendliness than our southern and western counterparts because we're so used to biting back chilly winds, replete with snow, hail, and freezing rain, that it's affected our general facial expressions and, by extension, moods and outlooks.

Joe, - It will sure start out innacurate but once they begin synchronizing all your emails and all your data including when geolocation services indicate that your are in some place where only lawyers hang out, they will soon figure out your're a lawyer and begin sending you clients for a commission instead...:P

Older than 35? You look great! :)

I'm surprised your location is so far off. It should be pulling data from your ISPs location and IP address to determine your location.

From a user's perspective, having relevance in search results and marketing is beneficial and doesn't harm as long as the information is kept private. The best thing about google is its integration of services and if the inter-connectivity helps in targetting the user's interests, then why not?

Mine too.  Maybe it comes from being a born and raised New Yorker.  We tend to be cynical by nature

Joe says: "... law enforcement profiling uses demographics to predict behavior, whereas Google profiling uses behavior to predict demographics."


Good point. And I def see the difference, it's just what it reminds me of and thus the comment.

I do like the "This stuff matters" comment from Google. Nice touch.

Google responds to criticism, in particular taking the Washington Post to task.

Also, when I ran a Google search this morning, this is what came up prominently on the top right corner of the page:



Great transparency!

Or, more to the point, law enforcement profiling uses demographics to predict behavior, whereas Google profiling uses behavior to predict demographics.
