  • Of course, the problem with A9 is that with all its personalization features, it can effectively collect much, much more extensive information about you than Google. Obviously, with the advent of Gmail, this anonymity crumbles if you don't clear its cookie. However, A9 can still tie together many more threads of information about you than Google does.

    For me, another consideration is that both services' data stores are situated in a country with far weaker privacy laws than those we have in Germany but something called the PATRIOT act to make up for it… which makes the use of A9 particularly precarious, but means I'm not signing up for Gmail either.
