I don't like how Google is trying to gather all the information and data it can about every individual and company within every industry and put it in a nest-egg for their own dictatorship and disposal. Slowly but surely Google wants to be the head of the Globalist agenda. They want to be at the center of information processing.
Are we going to allow them to dictate to us the actions of our entire lives? Gmail, Checkout, Voice, Nav, Maps..now Places Directory... what else? I am sure I am forgetting something. Every time a new app is released, if Google sees potential in it, they will make their own version and promote it as superior. Don't hate Microsoft for monopolization when Google is twice as worse.
I'd rather see a raw Android device with choice rather than being forced to use all of their native applications. [This and the next paragraph are irrelevant to the major issue at hand and are just one example so keep the ideas separate. Android is just a tiny slice of the pie when it comes to the larger ideas but we can see the same mindset being used by Google.
Google is worse than Microsoft and Apple when it comes to the cellular industry. Apple has a phone and its own OS but doesn't license it out for other companies to use. In all honesty "The Google Phone"...may be Android's first crack in the armor. If it is anything more than a pure data device, cell phone carriers will be sharpening their own blades awaiting for a true OS, ridded of pre-existing bias. Kudos to Verizon for rejecting the "Google Phone." If Google fails in the cellular industry then maybe...just maybe their globalist ideas of information domination will be harmed.]
If we let Google take over our lives now...there is no turning back. Future generations are dependent on us to say when enough is enough. We are at a turning point. I beg of you to use other search engines occasionally, use Yahoo for example. Stop being a slave to one organization.
I know Google is convenient for a lot of people to use...but what comes easy is not always best. Please - Stay strong.
(Keep in mind I support my Droid and Android OS. I am just raising caution for the future ahead of us. Compromise is possible. There is a middle ground. It doesn't have to be one way or the highway.)
