Google under Fed Pressure to provide Sex searches

No doubt that Google is the number one search engine in the world. Millions of searches are being done at Google everyday. Topics range anything from books to sex.

Federal Government is pressuring Google to hand over the report of all kinds of searches that are being done at Google. It means several millions of queries, and the Fed is also asking them to turn in the websites that people visit.

Government wants to learn the way people surf online. They want to see how often people visit porno sites. Basically Bush Administration is trying to make the online pornography law active.

Google however is denying turning in the report saying that it will be against privacy policy. Other search engines have however complied with the government.

So is it a good thing or not? I know it’s wrong to share information in public, but what some of the services that Google offer. What about Google Earth for instance. I personally haven't used that much but heard from friends that you can even see the card parked right in front of your door/house. Now how safe is that?

We will see what happens...
