If you’re a longtime reader of this site, you probably know how much I love Google’s various apps and services because I talk about it all the time. If it were up to me, pretty much every app on my iPhone would be a Google app. I use Gmail for all of my work and personal email, Google Photos to back up all of my images and free up storage on my handset, Google Maps and Waze to navigate, Google Drive to access files in the cloud, Google Voice for all of my work calls, Google Calendar, and plenty more.

If you’re overly concerned about privacy and you think Google cares enough about you personally to use this data in some nefarious way, the solution is simple: don’t use Google services. Personally, I’m happy to hand over my data, which is also used to personalize my app and service experiences in so many great ways. Thanks for being so evil, Google!
