I'm getting to be a bit annoyed at the grip google has on me now.. Seems to be hard to use my phone now without logging into google (and requiring a gmail account!) via it now. Probably no worse than apple though. Maybe I'll stick to facebook afterall!I Quite enjoy Google's grip on me, in fact I feel like it is more of a warm smothering embrace. The more it knows about me the more adverts I see that are relivent to me. Quite often I will stop what i am doing to give an advert a click and see what it's about. I also feel quite confident that what Google knows about me will be kept safe and not used by Google for evil things. What do you think?!
I think you work for Google. I also think that I like my AdBlock+ and Ghostery firefox plugins. I pay for my Internet connection. I will not pay to see adverts. Gordon -- The Mailing List for the Devon & Cornwall LUG http://mailman.dclug.org.uk/listinfo/list FAQ: http://www.dcglug.org.uk/listfaq
