Google Reduces Data Retention to 18 Months

Google is shortening its data retention length from 2 years to 18 months.  This move is partially motivated by furthering compliance with European Union privacy directives.  The change may or may not meet the EU rules.  Cookie expiration is still an issue. 

More on this from the Google Blog, IT Wire, and the New York Times.
