OK, excellent in comparison to service providers who just dump to the feds without restraint and don't provide any encryption service at all. At least these guys are willing to discuss their limitations and what they do in regard to the legal system. Nothing's perfect, folks.

And if you need more privacy, Hushmail is an excellent email service.

I second Jake's recommendation of DuckDuckGo, and add another for Ixquick from the Netherlands, the only search engine with EU privacy certification.
For Mac users, you may also be interested in checking out a new web browser, White Hat Aviator, which appears to be the most privacy oriented browser now available. I've been using it for a month now. Fast and slick, though if one leaves on the default privacy settings, there are a few inconveniences, e.g., you have to tell it to turn on a plug-in, e.g., Flash, each time web sites are using those programs. A bit inconvenient but very smart.

There is also a very new browser, Epic, which runs on both Macs and PCs.
Both of these new browsers are built on Chromium, the same open source platform that Google Chrome is built on, but without all the Chrome intrusions.

FWIW,
Jim Campbell
