They will always consolidate user tracking data with other data bases to know exactly who you are. Hell, Chrome takes your keyboard strokes from anywhere you are on the internet and you’ll see ads related to your keyboard strokes within minutes on YouTube.

They are all untrustworthy.

I don’t even use Google search anymore for most stuff. Their site is just horrible with too many videos and recommendations. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Go to the DUCK.

Google is evil so I'm going to install a different OS like these eventually: https://itsfoss.com/open-source-alternatives-android/. Android is Linux-based so it's easy and it stays quite stable for a long time. I put Ubuntu on an old laptop that had Windows on and it's like new again

It is sort of obvious when the person writing the article is an Apple person.

They over mention Apple trying to spin a positive on it all the way up to instead of saying Android has over 85% of the world smartphone market, the writer feels the need to include Apple has 50% of the USA market as if that is even relevant.

Very strange way of writing.

It’s like when your neighbor tells you that he/she stopped recording and sharing the videos of you in your house.

...after you let that neighbor install cameras and microphones in your place to do so.

Or I should say:

...after you install those cameras and microhphones in your house, then call up your neighbor, and give him all the connection information, and permission to record you sometimes.
