EFF Warns Not To Use New Google Desktop

The EFF is asking users not to use the new version of Google Desktop that has a ‘search across computers’ option. The option will store copies of documents on your hard drive on Google servers, where the government or anyone who wants to may subpoena (i.e. no search warrants) the information. Google says it is not yet scanning the files for advertising, but it hasn’t ruled out the possibility.
