I use many Google services and have an Android phone, so I assume Google
knows a great deal about me.

But there's no reason not to add Tor when I can, especially for
non-interactive things like Calendar where the primary usability hit
(higher latency) is negligible. 

I use Tor for as much as I can, to try to enforce a "default-deny"
policy for all of my personal information. This way, when I use
something like Calendar and tell Google that I'll be at some place at
some time, that's *all* I'm telling them.
