I reported that Google Revamps Google Accounts Page. The most noticeable difference is the listing of Google Services, from Gmail to the Google Coop, on the My Account page. There are also links to update your personal information, you credit card information (see Google Checkout), your payment history (checkout again), your ship to information (checkout again) and some other links.
So it is all coming together, on this single Google Account page. If it hasn't hit you yet, just login to your Google Account and you will see. Google knows what we like, what we search for, our interests, our personal information, our shipping information, our purchase behavior and now our credit card information. Convenience over privacy...
This is probably also related to Garett's discovery of Google Account Authentication Proxy. Probably more related towards sellers integrating Google Checkout into their shopping carts. Maybe?
