    Google is a great company, in a way that they have the ability to not only create new ideas and software, but even improve it to a new level no one would’ve otherwise thought of. Their latest and greatest update is to one of the better features on our Android devices, the voice search feature. This update makes it more personal in the way that it keeps track of what you like searching for and so you get better results and it is more accurate.
    Here is how they put it:

    That means keep your voice searches clean folks, because Google is storing audio records of everything you speak into the device. We all know there's no such thing as privacy when you're sending/receiving data over the internet, not to mention having that data stored in an unknown location. ;)

    I swear that VOice Search is already built in to train to your voice but maybe its training me!

    IMHO, I thought it did a fine job to begin with, as long as I spoke cleanly/clearly ...

    This will be a good update, in addition to the other bug fixes in it.

    The question negs, if you dissassociate your recording with your google account, good luck, because that option mentioned isn't there yet. :)

    I guess storing the sound of my voice isn't too much creepier than storing my internet searches. There's a trade-off here, folks. If you want privacy, you can't have the convenience. And so vice versa, if you want convenience, you can't have the privacy (at least not if you're using Google apps).

    They way I rationalize it for myself is by considering that Google as a whole doesn't care what I'm doing, they only care about the data that I give them, because they want to target ads at me.

    This article is rather amusing to me. Not because of the content but because yesterday I thought to myself "man Voice Search ***** pisses me off... there has to be a way to make this better." Low and behold I found this article & got excited. Not sure why I got so excited but I did... probably my cynical low expectations. Sure they're tracking our voice patterns... but who cares? They're already tracking our e-mails, phone calls, chat records, location, data usage, etc... what's one more thing? I may even sign up for the Google Chip Implant if they release it. Who am I? No one. If they care to track what I'm doing... pfft... whatever.
