do you seriously think that verizons not selling your information? I'd rather give my information to the company that does a better job managing it.
Correct, smaller corporations have a better chance of selling your information off to ad agency and such.Google is more of the 'freelance' type that not only collect information, but doesn't really 'need' them as they look through the info and then stash it.
Google provides a service with it at least. I don't get anything from Verizon if they were to get that information.
