Why is it that people start cracking out at the thought of Google 
offering a free service that people might have an actual use for and 
that is completely optional and used by choice?

It's a free service people!  No different then Hotmail, or Yahoo Mail, 
or Gmail, AOL Instant Messenger, MSN Messenger...  Use it if you want, 
but if you don't, so be it.  They're not holding a gun to your head.

It would be one thing if installing Google Chrome or similar changed 
your DNS settings without your knowledge.  MS in the past forced MSN 
Messenger onto people by default in most Windows installs, and the world 
didn't end.
