It makes me a little sad. I remember when Google was geeky cool. But you’re not allowed to rule the world, even if you promise to ‘not be evil.’
So there’s talk about how to “fire Google,” and probably Brad has the best take I’ve read so far on how to accomplish that. Relatively easy, except for the Youtube thing.
On a related topic, beware of those newfangled “app” thingies. Even the ones sold by Google Play. They’re watching you.
I do believe it was Google that taught us all the sad aphorism, “If you’re not the customer, you’re the product.”
