What does Google need from Android? — Benedict Evans
An Android device, properly signed into a Google account and running all
the Google Apps, generates an endless stream of little bits of 'signalling'
information, way beyond what Google gets from a desktop search user even if
they're using Chrome. It knows where you live and work, how you commute -
and which phone numbers on web ads you dial. Unlike a web browser, you are
probably always signed in to Google, so all of your interactions with
Search, Maps and anything else can be linked together. (This, of course, is
also the main purpose of Google Plus.)
