Well - this was the situation when I uploaded the video! They do tend to change! xx
Thanks! Entertaining podcast, you have a great radio voice! I'm off to re-read 1984 and brush up on my oldspeak.
wow props to you for uploading that and for coming across as absolutely brilliant btw
Nice talk, good ideas. Embed your video next time, makes it more likely people will watch.
I had apparently never turned the history on in the first place, but you reminded me to get rid of my gmail account and check if I have any other google things left. Cheers :-)
I grew up in a country where personal ID numbers are issued upon birth and not having them is illegal. The state keeps track of you throughout your life through your number which never changes. If you want to get a phone line, a rental contract, an ADSL account - you always have to have it. And the state sells the info under your ID through a company they own, to anyone willing to pay (such as companies wanting addresses for advertisement purposes). I can check anyone's personal info just by having their ID number.
You really kind of scared me to be honest. I went and did all of that stuff and deleted my google history but I don't think anything has changed, I still have plenty of accounts and stuff.
I've done it with about 3 of my accounts already (umm yes I have alot of them) but now my current main account isn't able to sign in... odd. I know I got both the email address and password correct, but it still rejects me. Fml.
Yes great podcast voice and very informative - Thanks!
Thanks! Totally love that commenting. You should do a lot more of that =)
Thanks for posting!
Thanks you guys for checking it out! Mmm, where do I go wrong with embedding videos, I never seem to manage it! xx
On youtube, click "share" below the vid, then "embed", it's also a good idea with Ning to tick the "use old embed code" box. Then copy & paste the code from the box that appears under the video.
Here's how you can do that:
1. Sign into your Google account.
2. Go to https://www.google.com/history
3. Click "remove all Web History."
4. Click "ok."
Note that removing your Web History also pauses it. Web History will remain off until you enable it again.
[UPDATE 2/22/2012]: Note that disabling Web History in your Google account will not prevent Google from gathering and storing this information and using it for internal purposes. It also does not change the fact that any information gathered and stored by Google could be soughtby law enforcement.
With Web History enabled, Google will keep these records indefinitely; with it disabled, they will be partially anonymized after 18 months, and certain kinds of uses, including sending you customized search results, will be prevented. If you want to do more to reduce the records Google keeps, the advice in EFF's Six Tips to Protect Your Search Privacy white paper remains relevant.
If you have several Google accounts, you will need to do this for each of them.
