As for Google, looks like they do own a lot of things:
Google already collects information when you use their search engine or any of their applications. Why should it surprise anyone that their browser, which queries their search engine for suggestions, also collects information?
And, of course, it can be disabled.
If people think Google's data mining is evil, by all means, don't use their stuff.
