If cursing offends you please press that little “x” on the upper lefthand side.
Alright so this impromptu post is thanks to my recent decision to give Google the finger! Yes I know that Google is the “god of the internet” and I still think that search engine wise they kick tush but everything else is just awful lately! Don’t believe me?!
Google Reader: As you know Google decided to shut down Google Reader effective as of last week!
Blogger: You buy a domaine via whoever-the-hell but Google has the “right” to delete your blog WITHOUT notice, if you sneeze the wrong way.
Google+: Do I really have to explain this one?! I still don’t fully understand what google+ is but I’m royally pissed off that Google FORCES you to have one if you have any of their other services!
Picasa: I use to LOVE Picasa, I thought it was the coolest collage maker ever. And even though I do still like the collages I can make (sometimes) I absolutely loathe how as soon as you start up Picasa it automatically steals every single pic on my computer! If I wanted you to have all my pics I’d upload them my damn self!
YouTube: YouTube slowly started loosing my respect when it introduced all those damn ads. YOU ARE GOOGLE for heavens sake! I’m pretty sure you can afford fewer ads! But that isn’t what sealed the deal for me, oh no, what sealed the deal happened today. Why, YouTube, must I have a Google+ account to upload videos?? I have 2 YouTube accounts (one @gmail the other @readsleeprepeat) because I ONLY want to use the video services when I am logged in as ReadSleepRepeat! I don’t want to use Google +, I don’t want to form circles, I just want to UPLOAD a few vlogs every so often and be done! I sit at my Mac for 2 freaking hours letting the movie export from iMovie to YouTube just for you to destroy my upload because I haven’t confirmed that I want Google+?! I didn’t confirm because I DIDN’T WANT GOOGLE+! But my wants mean nothing because you still went and made it a mandatory add on! That’s what pisses me off the most. For months you’ve been giving me the “option” to add Google+ or “ignore” this prompt. But it never was an option! You were going to convert it anyway, so why feed me bullshit about “options”?!
Ok I’ve ranted enough. So, my lovely followers, any suggestions on uploading my vlogs via another outlet? I’m pretty sure I’m just going to delete all my google stuff and continue giving them the finger.
