I have no problem with google knowing everything about me. At least ads are more interesting when they're tailored.
Who looks at ads these days. Iron has an inbuilt ad-blocker too...Well it's also extra data and everyone is so fussed about download speeds and computer speeds, every little bit of extra speed you can irk out of your line (when it's not being used by google) is a good thing.
I look at ads. They generate revenue, revenue is good for the web. If everyone blocked ads they'd come up with some other way to monetize the web (like paywalls). I look at the ads to keep the web free for you.
I also have a 50mbps line. Downloading movies at 30mbps doesn't look to have any impact on my web browsing, sending a few stats to google won't make much of a difference.
I'd rather not be encouraged by adverts to buy lots of stuff I don't need
I wish I could get a net connection like that round here
Virgin should be rolling out 100mbps soon!BT have made noises about making sure some rural areas get fibre to door so you might get lucky.
