Around three years ago while driving; I shouted loudly: “We’re lost! I don’t know how to go back home”. My young daughter replied quickly “Don’t be panic, dad. Google is there and will guide us.” !!!
Google had punished me severely once. I was banned for life from some services such as AdSense. So, in return, I decided to abandon most of the services provided by Google. I’m punishing back… It’s my motto now and I’m proud of it… I’m the only one among my friends who is using Outlook (Hotmail) not Gmail. I’m the only one who doesn’t use Chrome browser except for some web testing. I’m a big fan of Firefox. I use Dailymotion instead of YouTube and Sygic (TomTom) instead of Google Maps! Moreover, I Bing things and don’t Google them!
Recently, Google Photos and YouTube were updated with better sharing options. Living abroad, those options are seducing me to use the services again… Thus, I’m here now to remind myself of how much bad Google was with me. Should a person forgive so easily? I’m here also to remind myself of the motto that I’m known for among my friends. Should a person respect their own promises & principles?
