    or anyone that knows anything about my proceeding discussion;

    last night, at a huge family gathering, an incredibly versed in the computer industry had made a comment about google, which I have not heard before, and gives me plenty of pause if true

    he stated that google uses patented technology that is acutally in query while you type.

    in the same fassion as when you search your pc microsoft datbase.

    can this be true?

    I can't find a referance on the internet.

    if true are also troublesome, this would be troublesome indeed

    for instance, use of bandwidth without user knowledge

    in addition, this activity is not recognized by my (or any) firewall, and if this is true, then google has made it's way into the permissions of ie.

    so

    my guess is this is that this type of activity is not happening

    anybody?

    No your right they dont do such a thing.

    The actual google site is about as clean as they come :)
