Jeremy was giving us a heads up about 2006 being the year of the privacy problems for search engines. And a couple of posts down, we see that the latest Google Desktop makes it very easy to send your documents (Word, PDF, you know, your personal documents) to the Google server for indexing...

It's a beautiful technical achievement and perfectly possible with their technology, but the privacy implications are huge, as you can imagine.

I'm just thinking all those corporate IT managers blocking access to Google data-centers in their firewalls to prevent this. Really, I do.
