It may work, Google really got spoiled
Especially Google started to make people really paranoid and I
can't blame them.

When you search for anything, the stuff you see at results page
as "enable search history", "login" (remember, it is NOT yahoo
portal), "create account" makes you suspicious.

There is still "We (our servers) will read every word on your
private mails and show relevant ads" issue on Gmail. Addition to
that: "Nothing actually gets deleted" issue.

If anything promising more privacy and trust to end user proves
to be successful, Google suits may wake up.
