I've noticed that Gmail puts google adds on the page based on the content of your open emails.

Is this even legal?!

i'd say your guitar is out of tune, or you are accidentally muting strings that you aren't trying to, or your right hand isn't strumming at the same time that your left hand is fretting, or you could be reading the tab upside down...

Yes it's legal, it happens in search engines all the time, too.

EDIT:
That site is the biggest rip-off ever! www.google-watch.org is where it's from.

Dude.

What does the G in Gmail stand for?

Google.

Seconly I'm not too worried about Google invading my privacy.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

^ It's not. It's just a program that matches keywords in emails to ads. And it's not that great. When I mention guitar it gives me ads for guitar lesson sites. Not exactly a massive invasion of privacy.

Well, they do save all emails, even after you've deleted them, and they have the right to read any emails they want.

I only use my gmail for when I need to sign up to stuff and they send you comfirmation emails. I don't want to use my primary email address because you know these websites will send you tons of junk.

its a simple Javascript code. it just pulls words from the text on the page (yes, text, not deep into the html reading at your bank account details) and displays possible hits for it.

Well do you honestly think it'll do them any good?

Think about it, you get like. I don't know, is it 2 gigs of space? I'm too lazy to check.

It would take them forever to find any kind of relevant information and use it against you.

Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

I got my pick stuck inside my guitar . . . . how am I supposed to get it out?

Pfft.

Like I care.

I don't really get that many emails, just between my girlfriend and I really. And random junk with registrations to various sites.

I... don't care? It's not like I'm doing stuff I don't want anyone else to ever know...

Well I believe if the company owns the site they can put whatever they want on it. Except old people porn.

I don't trust MySpace at all. I don't even type my phone number in messages to people.
What's so unsettling about that pic?
