I really like this toy. I figure that I sold me soul to to devil (Google) and all the rest are stealing my data from me. Ghostery gives me the opportunity to make that explicit and stop the bleeding.....Google might want to rebrand Doubleclick in their name -- but I happen to know they bought Doubleclick.

In the long run I'd like to see clearer relationships where you know what you are being sold as as the product, and they cannot productize you without providing at least an acknowledged dollar in return, but I know very well what Google gives me, and I am quite willing to give them a semi-exclusive contract to data about me in return. (Amazon also has a valid claim --- no others.)
