You may be right. It is a scary thought that people will get more and more used to companies looking over their shoulder, tracking their every move, knowing which chapter of an ebook they lingered over, etc. More intrusion may become the norm, and sadly, people may indeed get used to it. I hope not, but we are probably headed there and people will probably go along with it

Syncing files to OneDrive or Google Drive is useful, but it creates some privacy exposure. Using a Microsoft Account to log in to Windows, sync settings between PCs, and have access to the same apps, or using a Google account to log in to ChromeOS, for the same benefits, are both useful things, but they carry a privacy trade-off.
The above applies just as easily to syncing books across ebook services like Kindle, etc.
