There is a subtle but important distinction here.
They are compiling more info than before about their subscribers while they are signed in to Google than before.

There are 100's search engines out there and if you use them while signed in to Google they will still be tracking it.
I like Dogpile myself,mainly because I just like saying and typing it!

So if you don't use Gmail or Google Docs or any other Google service WHILE LOGGED IN then you are not being watched.
They own You Tube now as an example. If you are using it without being Signed In to your You Tube account all is OK. Once you do Sign In then the trouble can start.

Exactly what the trouble is is yet to be known of course?
Ed, I have no google accounts, but I just removed a google web beacon from my cookies file.

Bing also allows you to clear all of your search history and turn the feature off so you won't be tracked in the future. There's a link on the left when you do a search.

You can see the links on the left on this page.
