  • This is the reason why I prefer Microsoft because the software and web designs are more beautiful. And almost everywhere I go, a bunch of websites and ads keeps recommending me to download Google Chrome and it is annoying. So I downloaded Microsoft Edge instead.

  • Well, they promised 99.9% uptime. Occasionally, they realized they have outperformed it and decided to shut down for an hour (0.01%) to ensure 99.9%. Fair enough, Google.

  • The home app is not that good. The google ai speaker I bought wont install on the app for a year, and google are unresponsive to error reports. I bought a movie the other day and the voices in the movie were missing, days later no reply to a error report. They used to be on spot for fixes, the company seems to have gone down a level in recent years, I think it used to answer questions better before too. It's dumber now.

  • People will never trade in convenience. Convenience is the driver behind google, we just want more of it constantly. A service doesn't even have to be better, just more convenient.

    BigRedTowerBigRedTowerMånad sedan
  • I don't think it's a question of "are there alternatives", because obviously there are. But rather, how secure are they? Service reliability? How well do they scale? Company fiscal stability? Ownership? What bottlenecks and weak points are there? How well do their services integrate and work with other systems? If you're trying to replace what Google provides, it's kinda important to do due dilligence to ensure you're not trading something flawed, with something worse. Having all your eggs spread across a whole bunch of different baskets, poses its own birds nest of operational, reliability and security challenges.

  • *Google were the ones who stole the government secrets because as soon as the government realized that they'd been hacked, that's when Google realized that the government was now aware of being hacked, so instead of being indicted by the grand jury and eventually all the top dogs going to prison for life, they instead used damage control measures to scrub any footprints that could ever lead back to them, and incidentally, that takes an average time of 30 to 45 minutes to scrub, but seeing as Google is just a tiny bit larger than the average company out there, it would have taken around an hour, but in that time they couldn't just leave their software and hardware running, because of the fact that the government DOJ, NSA & DHS use the very best trackers to track down who hacked them. Google obviously knew this, so instead of letting them track the breadcrumbs back to the company, the higher-ups simply took all of Google OFFLINE for the first time since the late nineties!! They pulled the massive on-off switch to the "OFF" position for the very first time ever. They then had an hour to scrub any trace of a footprint or backlink, then they put Google back online once again, this time CLEAR of any "wrongdoing"!!!*

I’m not going to explain why these alternatives is not real alternatives, and you know why exactly, because otherwise you would post this video on Vimeo. On the other hand I did not believe in new Google services because Alphabet killing them after couple of years after launch.

  • The school I teach at uses Google for everything. Our email, our shared drives, online classrooms, virtual meetings... everything. We were in school when this happened and I had to shift our lesson for the day to omit the Chromebooks completely. Just a few short years ago our school corporation used traditional on site shared hard drives with computer labs. Back then it would have not really bothered us much. But today... we rely on it FAR too much. I always keep everything backed up on a physical drive in my home.
