Don't have a single Google product anywhere and don't even have Google saved in my favorites/bookmarks search engine folder, of which there are currently 18 different one's saved!
Google has and always will suck a**!! IMO
I love going against what you all think is so cool and great!!
I'm about to drop Google in its entirety too.
Bing isnt as good as Google when it comes to search results in Holland.
But today i found out that Streetview is not supported in IE10 anymore, while it has always worked properly. I'm sick and tired of Google abusing its position to battle Microsoft over the backs of their users!
I know MS launched the Scroogled campaign, but they arent bugging me with it. Google is, no proper support from them to WP, they seem to counter everything they can. Which is quite frankly just getting anoying.
I used Google for search and maps mainly. Guess I'm making the move to Microsoft today, and I do hope many follow to leave Google.
Hopefully they will start realizing that pushing away the people that made them big isnt the best thing to do! Respect your users Google or bite me!
They forget the only thing that made Google big, is us techies. Not marketing, nothing else.
We (your users) made you big and mighty, we (your users) can take it away from you!
EDIT: actually just tried google maps in Ironware and no surprise, it works a dozen times better and smoother then maps ever did on IE. Way to go Google... jeez. Your constant abusing of your market position will be your end, I do hope the EU and US will put you in a similar decade long anti-trust as Microsoft has gone through. I'm sick and tired of this game Google plays... Its only making it worse for us consumers/users.
I will actively promote people to use other services then Google's, in a last attempt to make Google realize they should stick to the values they started with over a decade ago. And that its not all about money and market-size.
