Google's power makes security officials nervous. Google has fast become the Internet search engine everyone clicks on to find out nearly anything about anyone, including financial, political and other presumably private data. But national security officials and others -- reportedly even Google CEO Eric Schmidt -- are getting a bit uncomfortable about Google's extraordinary reach. Schmidt was most unhappy when an Internet news reporter, writing about Google and privacy, used the search engine and quickly found and revealed Schmidt's home address!

Lord and master, hear my call! Ah, here comes the master! I have need of Thee! From the spirits that I called Sir, deliver me!
The Sorcerer's Apprentice - Johann Wolfgang Goethe
