Ok. Heres the deal. Some of you (if not all) will remember a while back various people in the computer & web industries were looking at creating a search tool that would search peoples hard drives.

Now, if I didn't want this to occur, but it still did and people could search my hard drive.... isn't it just another form of hacking? .... or am I just missing something (which I know I am.. heeheehee... bring bring!) :speechless: :rolleyes:

Do you mean the google and msn desktop searches?

They can only search your hard disk if you install the application... unauthorised access to someone's data is illegal, and therefore only you can see the search results even if you do chose to install the app.

There are already tons of them out there - Google, MSN, Yahoo, AskJeeves, X1, Copernic etc. Google's offering is the only one that's had privacy issues so far.
