I disagree categorically with that.
Turning off Google affects at most my use of electric maps--they still
have a better setup than any of the others I have tried.
I use Bing, but there are lots of other engines around--some of them a
lot more honest.
The scary thing to me is that since most of the medicos I see have gone
to an Obamacare-compliant records system and all I see is people's
backsides at their computer terminal as they use a Google dialog box for
most of what they do.
