  1. Ah, what’s $19-billion — barely 15 per cent. Nothing but a speed bump :-)

  2. I think that the DoJ push for search records might also have had an impact, especially if people in the know are hearing ruminations about DoJ lawsuit as necessary…

  3. “privacy protection” principle or just a public relations move from Google?
