I’m glad to see that Google’s newest toolbar can remotely search another computer’s desktop, however, if you should let Google do this to YOUR desktop is another story. Do you want 30 days worth of your computer’s data stored on Google’s servers? Is this safe?
CNN writes To enable the computer-to-computer search function, a user specifies what information should be indexed and then agrees to allow Google to transfer the material to its own storage system. Google plans to encrypt all data transferred from users’ hard drives and restrict access to just a handful of its employees. The company says it won’t peruse any of the transferred information.
Once another computer participating in a user’s personal network is turned on, Google automatically transfers the information so it’s available to be searched.
