Google & FBI?

This one is kinda funny. Google has denied allegations that they are in cahoots with the FBI. The electronic privacy folks made the claim that Google�s G-Mail would be used for law enforcement purposes and Google denies it. I think someone is confusing G-Mail with G-Man. I just can't see FBI agents sitting around searching on Google for suspects.

Google on Thursday denied that it has had any contact with the FBI regarding the design of its Gmail Web e-mail service. The search firm's denial came after the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the FBI seeking information about whether the bureau was considering the "possible use of Google's Gmail service for law enforcement and intelligence investigations."
