I just read that there is a Google Health – wow. Went there immediately, eager to create an account, to satisfy both fanboyhood and curiosity to see what they got in stock. Possibly the ultimate SportsTracker / Endomondo / Nike+ / adidas miCoach killer? The ultimate location-based rich mashup crowdsourced social mobile application wet dream of a geek doing the occasional workout?

Well, the excitement did not last long. Only until the screen with the Terms of Use came up and I read the first line.


I  hereby authorize Google to share the health information contained in my Google Health profile(s) in its entirety, to only those entities and individuals I designate, for the purpose of providing me with medical care and for the purpose of sharing my information with others that I choose.
