    Yep... you read that right.
    Google is selling your inbox, and it's contents to outside companies. And as Wall Street Journal has broken - some of these companies are not ones that you would want reading your mail.

    Oh yeah, they crawl your contacts once you sign in. Fuck them.


    Once you sign in, you can't sign out on a phone.

    It is annoying how nowadays you sign up for something you need and you are bombarded with crap trying to get you to use affiliated services. Back in the mid '90s the internet was a much different place. I sound old lol.
