If we're going to pit Google against Bing...then honestly I'm not worried about Bing.
Even though I'm using MS online services a lot more than Google's, Bing clearly still remains rather clueless as to who am I. Google, OTOH, despite me making proactive efforts not to ever log into anything of theirs, has a much more accurate profile. How they do it, I'm not sure, but to me it reeks of underhanded tactics they'd rather not have anyone know about.
Sounds like the right decision. Good luck with the new venture
