Google going evil
It looks like the predictions of Google turning evil are starting to come true.
For the first time they have started sueing over patents:
FOSS Patents: Google files first patent infringement suit in company history to hit back at BT
They are sueing BT, so it isn't all bad

Not just any company either, an advertising company, the worse kind imo.

I would rather pay a little money and keep my info as private as possible, than give it away free to some advertising giant.

I find that Google, like Kit Kat Chunkies, are an evil you just can't live without!

I did spend a month without Google and found that it is possible (apart when people thrust some things in your face that you have no control over such as using Google maps on their webpage). In the end I worked out what I could easily do without and what was too much effort to try to avoid. You can do similar for most firms out there.

Agreed, I don't really use Googles stuff apart from when someone shares it like youtube videos - I guess I have posted a couple of those - I probably use googles stuff once or twice a month actively. Well till I brought the Nexus but even that is just used as a browser, a bad one, and to run the EduGeek App as there is still not one for Windows Phone.

A bit dated now (due to changes of search selections within browsers on phones, etc) but still worth a read.
