Google Dashboard shows your accounts

Google today launched their newest 'feature', Google Dashboard, with the words "Transparency, choice and control — now complete with a Dashboard!". That implied a major thing: is Google opening up? Hold your horses, because they are not…

With Google Dashboard Google said it wanted to offer a simple view into the data associated with your account. The 'simple view' was the most important line in there. Google has actually only made a list with all your accounts. Its handy, yes, but not the transparency they seemed to be implying.

Google claims it wants to give greater transparency on what they are keeping from your data. The Dashboard summarizes data for each product that you use (when signed in to your account) and provides you direct links to control your personal settings. Today, the Dashboard covers more than 20 products and services, including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Web History, Orkut, YouTube, Picasa, Talk, Reader, Alerts, Latitude and many more.
