On a Google-related note: I think I spotted you commenting in my blog the other day using a Gmail address. Upcoming post on your Gmail adventures? :)

Google has been doing the tracking thing for a looong time. The thing is they only do it occasionally to random users. Seems like a good idea to me. First of all they don't create too much attention to the tracking, second they don't use a lot of resources tracking a huge amount of users. It would probably be quite the headacke to track all of the sessions on Google.

The related searches feature is fairly new, I like it. :-)

Funny. My Google does not display related searches. (And I use the English interface, I switched after discovering that the Faroese interface did not include news serach.)

My Google does however include news results, if I search for e.g. "world war" (http://www.google.com/search?num=30&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&safe=off&q=world+war&btnG=Search)
