One of the reasons I have a hard time trusting Google

It appears that Google might have intentionally overridden privacy settings in Apple's Safari we browser (see link). I have been wary of Goggle in the past because I do not like the idea of somebody tracking my every move online. However, people here made a convincing case that the information being harvested was relatively innocuous and that one could opt out. I was sufficiently convinced that I was actively looking at buying a Android tablet. Now I'm not so sure in light of the claims made by some about Google bypassing user privacy settings.

Anybody else know anything else about this?
My first was a Mac+. Now I own an iPhone with 3.5x the pixels, a colour display, WiFi, 512x the RAM, >1500x the data storage, and 100x the speed. And it fits in the palm of my hand.

This is fairly old news I believe. You might check these stories for other thoughts on the issue. I think the story you've linked to is just that a lawsuit has been filed/moving forward.
