I’ve been reading Podz’s distaste with Google. I think it started with Blogger, because someone copied his website exactly. Content, layout, pics – everything. Google didn’t do anything for him, because they stated that they can’t do anything about it.
I don’t know if he had a problem with Gmail, but since he kept it at 5MB most of the time, he switched back to using his email account through his site.
Should I break as many ties with Google as I can? It’s not like A9, Yahoo, or MSN Search are lame – for the most part, Google has been really good with their search algorithms. However, is there a deeper motive?
If I do decide to cut as many ties to Google as I can, what do I do about my email accounts? Everything is forwarded to Gmail at the moment.
Here’s some Podz rants and links:
…and that’s not all. You should definitely search his site for Google and see what he has to say. I think he has good points for the most part. Please note there might be some swearing over there.
P.S. I typed this right before midnight last night on my PDA, and just copy and pasted it here this morning. Cut me some slack for any confusion I might’ve written. 🙂
