    Google is trash. Do not use for Privacy reasons. They just data mine your information.

    There is no clash for Google. You are the product, the little worker bee coming for its fix; why should you matter, as long as you keep coming?

    I don't use any of Google software products, they all kinda suck and I don't fully trust them. And I must say their search engine could also use an update, I'm not always impressed with the search results.

    The less I have to do with google the better I like it. Their reach is so hideous and yet people keep falling into their trap willingly with a fashionable blindness. Sad.
