    I really do not think $25 is worth handing over my surfing habits and privacy to Google. It’s not even like they are giving you the $25 up front. $5 up front then $5 every month you stick with it up to $25? …… I don’t think so, my online surfing habits and privacy is worth a little more than that. Besides, who knows who they will share it with also.
