If true, and if it stays true, and if we trust it, fair enough. I just don't trust function not to creep, once the feature becomes commonplace, and accepted. Nor do I trust either MS or Google. At all.

Personally, therefore, on the one hand, there's my scepticism about this, or at least, where it leads. On the other hand, I look at what 'benefits' this offers me, and how I value them. Do I want what this offers? At best, I'm indifferent to the advantages. More accurate, don't give a .... hoot.

Of course, YMMV.
