Google Desktop Search – So Good, It’s Scary

By now you’ve probably tried out Google’s new desktop search and oohed and aahed over the results. You might also have had a few unpleasant suprises when innocuous searches turned up cached emails that you composed days ago.

Contrary to what you might believe, this is not a good thing, especially if the tool is on your work/college computer. You can disable searching for emails by selecting the right options in ‘Desktop Preferences’.
