google reads your ip address

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

did you know that google reads your i.p. address? in theory and presumably through their learning algorithm the company could compare your searches to those of your neighbors or people in your building. well, thank goodness some ISPs are constantly changing their customers’ i.p. addresses. does yours?

is this google paranoia? do you suffer from it? is there a remedy for this? the c.e.o. of the company, who recently said people should change their names as adults to avoid indiscresions as a youngster on social networking sites where you voluntarily let an AV nerd like zuckerberg put your behavior into a database, might say just turn off your computer.
