You know what, after further thought I'm going to withdraw that.  First of
all, I think Google does require you to click agree before you can access
the service we're talking about.  But more importantly, I'm going to cast
doubt on my previously held opinion of whether or not a TOS should be able
to bind someone who didn't click on anything.  If I leave a bunch of Apples
on the table at work and put next to it a sign that says "Apples: $.25
each"...  I don't know, I'll have to think about it.
