Jeff Geoghan from Lancaster, PA, reminds us that its only a few days before Google's privacy policy changes so you need to delete your browings history. He shows you how.

With Google's new privacy rules going into effect next month (which is only days away), it might be a good time to hop into your Google account and turn off your web browsing history collection - oh, you didn't know you had one?  Yep, it's true. 

Google wil be importing your browsing history into it's other applications, this after years and years of withholding that data separately within the search application.  But how to protect?  Google itself has a one-click solution that's easy to get to and turn off your Google web history.  Gizmodo does the best job of explaining it so here's the link:

Good choice for a re-blog.  There is going to be very little privacy on the internet.  

I hope you are having an outstanding week.  Did you take photographs at Longwood Gardens?

Thank you for this information.  In the mass of emails I receive every day I must have missed this "alert."
