    Despite opposition from privacy groups and regulators, Google's privacy policy update is set to go live today, March 1. But is this something that should have you worried, or is it much ado about nothing? Depends on who you ask.
    At issue are plans to consolidate Google's 70 or so privacy policies across its products down to one. But with this change, Google will have one profile for users rather than separate logs for services like YouTube, Search, and Blogger. It's that account consolidation bit that has privacy advocates up in arms.
