And JMad, here is perhaps a less sensationalist take on the Buzz privacy issue. Similar examples to the other article, but fleshed out in a bit more detail - http://gizmodo.com/5469101/google-buzz-is-a-dirty-snitch
I think most people are less concerned about the privacy issue itself and more annoyed that Google forced Buzz on everyone unasked.
yep. I read that one too. I couldn't sleep (since I slept till 4pm yesterday), so I read a whole crapload of stuff about Buzz. and i played around in the app trying to figure it out.
there's an article on Cnet where some woman does everything short of proclaiming Buzz to be the Antichrist come to steal the souls of God's Children.
the reactions run the gamut from that extreme to "wtf are you nagging about?"
Buzz is clearly a love/hate thing and will be for the forseeable future.
