McGill University Student Vows To Quit Using Google Over Privacy Concerns

I gotta let you guys read an article I came across in the student newspaper of McGill University in Canada. Mcgill is one of Canada’s most prestigious universities; it is often ranked number 1 in the country for academics.

The student who wrote the article calls Google “the biggest of the Big Brothers” and says that it basically “owns [her] soul” because Google knows just about everything about her. So she has resolved that by the end of February, right before Google implements a new version of their privacy policies (which many have said is going to make it even more intrusive than ever before), she will quit using Google services altogether.

I give this young woman two thumbs up for recognizing what Google is doing and for calling them out on it. More people should follow her example.
