Windows 7: Officially Google Free for 15 seconds and counting.

12 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
 
 
Officially Google Free for 15 seconds and counting.

After reading the F*ck You, Google article on Gizmodo.com, Completly hating the way Google introduced Buzz, and recently changing my email address to email provider GMX.com for the nicer UI. I have finally pressed the button to cancel my Google account not even 15 seconds ago from within my Google Chrome web browser. Don't get me wrong, I like Google's products and a lot of other people do to BUT I didn't use Google for anything else since I closed my g-mail account.

But, the article on Gizmodo is a very,very good read and a comment on the blog said a very true statement. -
Quote:
Has Barak Obama ever visited *Insert pornographic website here*, or made some intemperate remarks about white people in his emails? I have no idea, but Sergei and Larry [the creators of Google] do, and if he did, they own him now. You too of course, same for all the senators and congressman, one false step on line and the Google has got your number.
When a worker working for Facebook told the world that any information on Facebook can be accessed by any employee within the building, people freaked out. But, it's Facebook's server and they OWN those servers. The thought that server owners shouldn't be able to look at any data on THEIR servers is just stupid. The same thing goes for people that think Google knows to much about them. It's Google's servers and they can store what ever they want on it.

NOTE: I now need a new web browser since I used Google Chrome because it was made by Google....i was such a fanboy....

Well, that takes bashing to a new sophisticated level. It's one's opinion and one is entitled to it. Only question I've got is: Where are my civil liberties and rights going? They are slowly being eroded away one little bit and bite at a time. Pardon the pun. I thought it quaint.

I wasn't trying to bash anyone or rant. Sorry if It felt like I was. I was just posting about how I'm now 100% Google Free (If such a thing is possible).

Haven't governments being doing that since the Chinese discovered rice. There is nothing new with this. If you are in the know you are in the know, it is what you do with it that counts.

IMO, That rant of an article is some of the worst bunch of gobbledee goop I've ever read. Poorly written and presented. Sorry, you were saying it was a very good read?

I wish more people would start moving away from googles products. Every PC i work on i warn the users of using google products and suggest free alternatives.

In the end though its up to them. If they dont care that everything they do on their pc is known by google then they can install google chrome OS, google chrome etc etc. and live in a world like this lol
