Breaking Up With Google

You have a relationship with Google. You see it everyday, talk to it, want something from it. And Google, arguably, knows more about you than most others do. And you rely on it, more than you do on others. But what if you question the relationship? What if you got this nagging fear there may be others out there? What, in other words, if you wanted to break up with Google? Well, of course, you’d make a pro/ con list!
