What do Google, Yahoo, AOL and Microsoft’s MSN know about you?

This San Jose Mercury News article summarizes the privacy and surveillance threats of search engines, focusing on the fact that much of the “massive amounts of data these companies collect, which can include records of the searches you make, the health problems you research and the investments you monitor, can be requested by government investigators and subpoenaed by your legal adversaries. …But this same information is generally not available to you.”
