I only read thorugh it quickly, there's something to really worry about?

By now, it only seems that, at worst, Google may act like an intrusive nuisance.

I always wanted to try out Thunderbird. But I'm not sure I want to go in under these kinds of circumstances (meaning going in as if I'm forced to). Well, I don't use my gmail for anything besides personal stuff. Every forum I've singned up eith and everything goes to my Yahoo one. Vut yeah I need to look into Thunderbird~.

Meh, I have decided to hold off going full-retard in favor of sticking around until the worst case scenario happens.

From what i understand, before you could share some of your information through one Google Service, and it wouldn't affect your other services. Now, all of google is consolidated, so once you okay part of your private info for one service, it's okay'd for all of them.
