"At least Google gives you stuff for free in exchange for datamining you"

Are you freaking kidding me???? With this kind of attitude dude you be screwed over!

I would rather pay Microsoft and Apple for their products than take free crap from Google any day of the week. Google is profitting on you with their "free stuff".

I personally tell Google to go screw themselves. What I do and what I am is non of their fracking business! Yes I avoid Google sh*t like the plague!!

And the more money they make the more free stuff they provide. I really don't have a problem with it. Facebook and Twitter are no better.

I'm curious tho, who do you use for e-mail? Web browser? Search engine? You do realize all these companies are datamining you. It's not just Google. The only real way to be 100% private is to never use the Internet. And really, why should I care? I'm not naive or deluded enough to believe my browsing habits are some kind of top secret intelligence. It really just doesn't matter.

Again I ask: what has Apple done for you lately?

Google, the GREATEST SPYWARE company that the world has ever known, released Android, obvious cheapo knockoff of the iPhone, in order to contiune their spyware ways.

My friend, let me introduce you to iAd, which will eventually lock up your device until you've watched the ad Apple has determined it's time for you to see, whether you want to or not. Oh, and track everything you do, including the websites you go to and the apps you download. Cause it's not like iTunes doesn't already index everything you buy, right?

At least Google gives you stuff for free in exchange for datamining you. A free search engine, a free OS, free email, free office applications, free phone calls. What exactly does Apple give you for free? A 50 cent piece of rubber so you can hold your shiny new iPhone in your left hand? A shopping portal that's disguised as a media player? 

Oh yes, I can clearly see how Apple is the more trustworthy and benevolent company.

Troll much?

The iPhone itself is nowhere near a relation of Android's.

Although I would agree that Google has some serious privacy issues and is making too much money for comfort...

The Android platform is a cheap whore. Google gives it to whatever will take it. Of course it's a fast growing platform, have you seen all the companies that are willing to jump on board?

Better a cheap whore that will do anything you want instead of an expensive call girl that keeps telling you she won't do this and won't do that.

I'd love to pick up an Android phone if I could find a carrier that didn't want to charge me $70+ a month. It's a stupid amount of money for what's essentially a big toy.

ive got an old phone, in which i pay 40 bucks a month (talk only), and recently found there were no phones that i wanted that would give me the experience i had, while not forcing me to be charged more monthly. i ended up just buying  a new battery on ebay for $4 (including shipping).
