Marissa Mayer takes a leaf out of Rummy’s book
Compare and contrast:
Before you could be signed in and be using one of the three products or two of the three products but not all and, of course, because people like to experiment with a new product, they forget whether they signed up for personalized search. Had they signed up for search history? This just makes it cleaner. If you’re signed in you’re using and/or have access to all three, if you’re signed out, you’re on the anonymous version of Google that doesn’t have personalization.

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.

There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don’t know
We don’t know.
