Generally not, although in this case she had opened her personal laptop to show her colleague an e-mail I had sent to her gmail account.
> Did you send the pictures to a work account?
> Is your wife angry with you?
No. She blames Google, not me.
> Is your wife in the > habit of opening private emails from yourself in front of your boss?
No, and she did not open a private e-mail from me in front of anyone. She opened a separate work-related e-mail, in front of her colleague, not my boss.
The e-mail she opened in front of her colleague was *not* a private e-mail; its entire content was work related, and she showed it to the colleague for work-related reasons. Her concern was that Google took pictures from a different (private) e-mail and displayed them alongside the work-related e-mail she was trying to show her colleague.

OK, and of course she'll have to figure out how to turn off the widget. But the widget itself would not be a bad thing if it only displayed pictures from my public profile. It is the fact that it takes pictures from an unrelated e-mail is what is insidious. It would be better if there were a way to leave the widget in place but disable its new "feature".
