Google is freaking me out - a response

I don't always agree with Google. Just last night I was reading why Nelson Minar was breaking up with Google. I've followed Minar as a thought leader for years. His post makes a lot of sense.

The drama around the privacy policy is a drama I don't get. It's more like the horror people some people felt when they were told Gmail would have adverts in it that were targeted to the contents of their emails. It's less like the usual howls of protest that rise up in alarm whenever Facebook makes a change because Google users won't see a change.

I'm certainly not much of a fan of the robotic voice of Xtranormal Movies. That said; this "presentation" seems to make the case clearly as to why some people are freaking out about the privacy policy and what a normal, logical, and sane response to those concerns would be.
