Short ago the laws in germany have been changed. ISP's are supposed to store data for half a year - of everyone.
There was quite an amount of noise against it. (The same laws are valid for europe/EU, if i am correct).
To be honest: I for one can't hear much noise against Google
Google is very present. Thats all about it. I guess. I install linux: it is there. I install firefox in windows: it is there. I go to the library: its the start-page. I hear the people talking: " i googled this and that". And so on.
Thats the thing i don't like about it. The lack of choice. Pushiness.
And a bit more, but not -mainly- the security/privacy stuff (more the style: young, cool, happy: colored. part of it.)
Yep: you didn't ask me. I answered anyway.
