Google’s over-reaching grasp – an escape plan…

Read the new Google privacy policy? What happened to “Don’t be evil”? I used to like them and still use many Google products (so far…) but they’ve become over-reaching, tracking us, and I don’t like the way they are forcing us to combine things (i.e., must have Gmail to have a YouTube account, etc.). Why be concerned about tracking? Read this (few words, many images, plenty info): http://donttrack.us/, and have you heard about “search engine bubbling”? Read this: http://dontbubble.us/

I’m beginning my efforts to independence.

First change: my new search engine is DuckDuckGo.com. Nice, clean, simple interface, no tracking (full privacy!), great search results.

Second: After researching, I migrated my blog from Blogger (Google required me to be signed into a particular Gmail account just to access it!) to WordPress, though I will miss a few features for a while.

Actively seeking alternatives to other stuff. Will keep you posted.
