For a long time I have been dissatisfied with Google as a company. Too many reasons to enumerate. It started when I was using Linux and I did not like Google’s lack of sharing with the Linux community.
Then when they came out with their own Linux branded Android, I vowed to never use it.
As a result, I have now moved all of my PCs over to BING for my search engine of choice. IPad, iPhone and PCs no longer use Google.
Oddly enough, I like the BING home page better than the Google home page I had been using.
I wish I could get away from Gmail, but unfortunately, I have too many to change them all. I never like the Hotmail domain name and that is what moved me to Gmail. Now that Microsoft has changed to office.com, I may consider migrating away from Gmail.
I guess my biggest problem with Google is that they are an information company and not a product company. They track all information flow and know more about everyone than anyone in the world. Their products are designed around gathering information from their users.
This is my protest for today. No more Google. USE BING!
