As far I know, you can block Google Analytics with NoScript.
Why is it necessary to stop Google Analytics ?
What harm is it causing?
What private information is it collecting?

Just concern that I don't know what is being collected, so I won't further investigate, will just block.

If I know you, by your post, no, you're not concerned.
I'm trying to stay in a point between you and Polonus ;D

Google's new 411 service is free, fast and easy to use. Give it a try now and see how simple it is to find and connect with local businesses for free.

I tried to setup AIM in gmail with Opera, couldn't do it.

I opened Firefox, signed into gmail & setup AIM.  Signed out of gmail & closed FF.  Opened Opera & signed into gmail.  Now AIM works in gmail thru Opera.

Google continues its quest to expand the Google Apps universe with a new Team Edition that makes it easy for workgroups to sign up for Google Apps without burdening IT departments or the lone IT support person.

Google Calendar Sync  allows you to sync events between Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar. You'll be able to determine the direction of information flow, as well as the sync frequency. Staying on top of your Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar events has never been easier!

Hi bob3160,

I would not put my money on either Google KNOL nor Wikipedia for that matter. For Wikipedia I know it has been tampered with from the highest circles so-called to smooth out the information there a bit. Not going into details. So I always like to hear various sides of a story to establish my own views. I learned that from Internet guru's like R.Fravia (http://www.searchlores.org) and for instance Richard Stallman  (open software guru). Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, and Google sits on an enormous amount of information equals power. We hear rumors about censorship filters being build into big Wirefire hubs in the U.K. now not to censor us, but just stupidly installed in a NetNanny style, having the same net result blocking access to for instance independent media. RipvanWinkle has been fallen asleep, I guess, what he will find if he finally wakes up, and opens his eyes to the information landscape...

I don't look through quite as cynical eyes as you my friend. Maybe that has to do with where I live. :)
