Rethinking Google

I have expressed myself quite negatively with regards to anything Google in the past few months.

Recently however, I stumbled upon this presentation at Build 2017 and I must say I feel different now regarding Google, especially as some of their weaknesses were revealed.

Good watch, even if you’re not into Angular!

      <blockquote><a href="#122997"><em>In reply to helix2301:</em></a></blockquote><p>With Google you know your data is not only used to improve your experience in computing. </p><p>The point of me posting the link to the talk is that Google internally is facing huge challenges with the technology they use for almost everything they do. And Typescript has been growing under the hands of distinguished Microsoft (!) engineers… That says (to me) something about the trustworthiness of Microsoft and Microsoft-technology…. But as a whole, also something about Google!</p>

          <blockquote><a href="#123039"><em>In reply to helix2301:</em></a></blockquote><p>Google is not competing with Microsoft. They are not even in the same league. So how could Google be worried? To further siko's comment to you, if you don't like the data or if you want to see what Google collected then go to your account and take a look at it or delete it. With Google there is total transparency. </p>
