Google once began with the simple motto of “Don’t be evil” which is great. Unfortunately they’ve long since abandoned that philosophy. As a monopoly, they are increasingly flaunting their powers and threatening our privacy. Now, they’ve even begun to get access to unredacted medical records. Do you really want information available between you and your doctor to be available to the search engine?
It’s time to abandon Google if you have not yet already. Over the next few weeks I will be posting suggestions on alternatives to their applications.
