Google launched its public DNS offering yesterday. Immediate reactions were “ooo, aaahhh, sweeet!” because we all know Google will nail the technology aspects of an fast, open DNS. Immediately following those reactions, however, came the “Oh great, now they know more about me!” statements.
This has Google’s public DNS casting a slightly different shadow now doesn’t it? Your ISP, while they probably do have a policy for privacy in place, has more than likely never shared that policy with you. Or, even if they have, you may not have read it.
What would I care if they have a log of where I’ve gone online? I don’t.
