How to clear Google search history

From a friend, for the paranoid. I tried wrapping tin foil on my fingers while I search, but this is likely a better solution:

If you have a Google account (e.g., G-Mail) and are logged in when you use Google, they are building an on-going history of everything you search for. As one writer put it, ‘If you can’t remember what you had for lunch yesterday, Google will help you remember your searches from last year.’

To delete your search history from Google’s database, do the following:
Go to
Log in to your Google account
Click the Search History button
Click the Browse All History link
Click the Remove Items link
Click the Clear Entire Search History link
Check the box at the bottom of the list that says “Do not collect any history until I choose to resume.”
Click the Clear History button.
That’s it.


Google searches through my thoughts

A couple of months ago I checked out Google maps. Some nice pictures, but I wasn’t too impressed. Now, whew, it’s amazing. Check this out.: I could imagine what some miscreant with Google Earth, the anarchist cookbook, and some bad intentions could do.
