Update on Google Desktop

Someone I know read my previous post, about Google's "Search Across Computers" feature of its Desktop Beta 3, and flipped out. She works from home using very sensitive documents, and had to sign intellectual property non-disclosure letters. With this feature on, the documents (Microsoft PowerPoint) she was working on could be stored on Google's servers and would technically constitute a violation of her non-disclosure agreement.

Although Google says it would delete them, any of us working in computer forensics know nothing every really goes away. I wonder if this feature will be enabled inside of business networks inadvertently?

Bad news ...
