TheUngeek: Sometimes google freaks me out.
Just logged into play store from pc in the first time in a loooong time.
Selected music, and there was a lsit of suggested music that was pretty spot on to what I'm in to.
I've never done anything with google music before!
Yeah, I know what you mean; it is uncanny! I figure that they used my age, gender and country as entered when I set up an account to figure that out. I also use Gmail, so that would be an additional source of profiling info. Others will be spooked by the "big brother" aspects of this. I weigh up the benefits compared to the risks and consider that what I am gaining by using the power and convenience of Gmail, outweighs any privacy concerns. Each of us will perceive that equation differently of course.
